It’s one of our favorite traditions with the annual Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser.
Each year, we add one new larger-than-life Big Bear to our extended teddy bear suite family, and we ask our fans and followers to nominate a name, and then ultimately vote for the their favorite through social media.
The newest unnamed member of that distinguished bear club, is currently keeping us company at our new 19 Winter Street office in Edgartown. Please feel free to come visit him/her in person.
If you’re new to the name game, or can’t remember whose already in the Big Bear family, here we go from oldest to youngest: Edgar, Chappy, TisBeary, Obie, and Lambert. We’ve ended up with more boy than girl Big Bears, and the most popular names are always ones that are unique to Martha’s Vineyard. It’s a fun tradition!
Let the naming begin! You can nominate names here on our Teddy Bear Suite blog (drop it into the comment area), or send us over your choice on our Facebook Page.
