Hockey fans in Pennsylvania covered their team's rink with teddy bears on Sunday night, pelting more than 45,000 stuffed animals into the arena as part of an annual charity drive.

The Hershey Bears, a professional hockey team located in the famous Pennsylvania town, host the annual charity stunt in which the stuffed bears are collected and donated to local charities. Fans are invited to throw the bears on the rink after the Bears score their first goal of the game.

Adding to the charitable spirit, a wealthy fan attending the game promised to donate $1 per stuffed bear to the Children's Miracle Network.
