Now going into its fifth 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 its After School Programs -- vital services used by hundreds of families across the Island.
Last year, we raised nearly $13,000 that helped renovate the Games Room -- the most heavily used facility at the Club, which serves hundreds of elementary school age children every week after school, until their parents can pick them up. Money raised helped major upgrades throughout, including new carpet, floors, furniture, paint, ping pong table, large screen TV and more.
This year, both the actual Teddy Bear Suite at the Harbor View Hotel's Captain Rowley Cottage in Edgartown, and our online fundraising effort are running in conjunction for a month, through December 23rd.
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.
