WELCOME LUCY! In remembrance of the fallen iconic rock at Lucy Vincent in 2020. We could not be more excited to have Lucy join our Big Bear Family, and we are looking forward to having you meet here at the 2021 Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite.
After wonderful weekends of Teddies Around Town, a great virtual Teddy Bear Trot and an epic week of fundraising, we’re back to a very important part of this year’s Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite – the naming of our 10 year Anniversary Bear.
Thank you to all of those who have emailed, texted, and shared their favorites names on social media. Clearly this bear is already an teddy bear suite favorite. And, how can he/she not be? This is one of the sweetest faces in our collection of big bears.

The Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite is a wonderful part of the holiday magic of Martha’s Vineyard, but it is so much more. This event has become the fundraiser to fund the MV Boys and Girls Club’s Healthy Happy Kids after school free food program.
The pandemic has greatly impacted the Club and how many children it can serve and help. As the virus starts to lessen its threat, the Club will have to mobilize quickly to again accommodate hundreds of children every week. We know that so many of the kids are waiting to go back to the Boys & Girls Club after school. There they can play, learn, have access to healthy food, and more.
We currently have $41,000 raised – surpassing our goal of $40,000. It would be wonderful to raise the $45,000 the MVTBS typically raises. With your help, we can help make the transition back to the Club easier for so many Island children. Know that every dollar given will go directly to the Club as we underwrite the Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite.
