Weekends have been beary special on Martha’s Vineyard. The Teddy Bear Suite has been open, helping friends and families making holiday memories. We’ve seen familiar faces and new, all relishing the splendor of this event. To help add to the fun and fundraising this year, we’re adding Holiday Photos With The Bears, as a special addition to the Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser.
We’re offering Holiday Photos With The Bears during Christmas in Edgartown at our new BEAR STUDIO. On Saturday and Sunday, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., you will have the chance to have a photo with the bears! Pop-Up Bear Studio Schedule
Holiday Photos With The Bears – Polaroid Pop-Up Bear Studio
For this super fun new addition, we will have a special pop-up photo booth in Nevin Square, where the store Chappy Happy used to be. With your donation of $5.00 or more at the entrance to the Teddy Bear Suite, you will be given a ticket good for one Polaroid picture at our BEAR STUDIO!
With Holiday Photos With The Bears — You can have a piece of the holiday magic to take with you! This is just one more way to add to the fun and fundraising of the Teddy Bear Suite. With the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite Fundraiser, we are working to raise the $45,000 needed to fund the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club’s Healthy Happy Kids.
Did you know that almost 40% of Kindergarten thru eighth-grade public school children receive food from the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club after school program, Healthy Happy Kids?
Did you know that this program for the last few years was completely funded by the money raised from the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite? Yes, $45,000.00 was raised with this magical holiday fundraiser through online donations, events, raffles and the suite itself. This year we have to match that $45,000 goal to continue to fund H2K.
$50 feeds 25 children for one day
$100 feeds 50 children for one day
$200 feeds all the children for one day
$1,000 feeds one child from September to June
So, far we have raised $17,900+, $27,000 more to go! We also have the 5th Annual Teddy Bear Trot 5k and Walk and of course our highly anticipated Holiday Raffle. Also, you can donate today online! Click here to make a donation.
