Now going into its fourth enchanting year, the Martha's Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite, 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 its After School Programs -- vital services used by hundreds of families across the Island.
This year, our fundraising dollars are going to help renovate the Games Room -- the most heavily used facility at the Club, that serves hundreds of elementary school age children every week after school, until their parents can pick them up. It's in need of substantial updating and improving, including new carpet and paint, plus a new large screen TV and ping pong table, and more.
This year, both the actual Teddy Bear Suite at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown, and our online fundraising effort are running in conjunction for a month, beginning Thanksgiving through the end of December.
While there are some donations at the door and a raffle as well, it's right here, where our online drive has helped us exceed our fundraising goal every year, as generous supporters of Martha's Vineyard and its families have been able to help raise much-needed funds, whether on Island or half a world away.
We thank you in advance for your support and help.
