Fans meet Buddy the Elf at Madison Square Garden event

Fans got to meet Buddy the Elf Wednesday at a special event at Madison Square Garden.

Fans sifted through fake spaghetti to find Buddy’s snow globe for a chance to win tickets to opening night of “Elf the Musical,” which kicks off its three-week run on Dec. 9 at Madison Square Garden. The winner also took home a $200 gift card to Carmine’s Italian Restaurant and 15,000 Starwood Hotels points
