Full Weekend Of Events For The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser – Teddies Around Town

This is a great way to see many of the bears, there are over 20 to find throughout Edgartown Village. There is also the 7th Annual Teddy Bear Trot Holiday 5k Run & Walk – be sure to sign-up early and dress festively!
Full Weekend Of Events For The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser – What Is The Teddies Around Town?
This is the second year for Teddies Around Town which is a safe, festive, outdoor scavenger hunt for a cause. Details on how it works:
- The scavenger hunt begins at Point B, where kids can pick up their riddles and stamp at 19 Winter Street, Edgartown.
- There is a donation of $5.00 per participant, which goes to Point B’s Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite fundraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club.
- Riddles will take kids around downtown Edgartown, from display window to display window, seeking bears of all shapes and sizes.
- Kids will stamp their own riddle sheets when bears are found to keep it 2021 friendly.
- It’s a level of family fun and interaction because the riddles often are best solved with some parent collaboration and involvement.
- The hunt ends back at Point B, where each participant gets a fuzzy prize!

The True Spirit of the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite
Now entering our 11th enchanting year, the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite, created and sponsored by Point B Realty, is a magical holiday tradition where family memories are made, and the money raised goes to help the Martha’s Vineyard Boys And Girls Club and their vital after school services and food program Healthy Happy Kids (H2K) used by families across the Island every week. We now hope to bring our 11-year total to over $300,000. We have raised $265,000 in the first 10 years. We have currently raised almost $23,000, and we need your help to fulfill our goal of underwriting H2K.
