Second Annual Teddy Bear Caper a Success!

Second Annual Teddy Bear Caper a Success!

Raising $5,000 and gifting 50 bears to patients

December 22, 2022

We were delighted to receive a very special delivery from EloraFergusToday.com & Village Media's "Teddy Bear Caper"; 50 festive teddy bears to brighten up the holidays for our youngest patients! The teddies were sponsored in their 2nd Annual “Teddy Bear Caper”, which resulted in 45 teddies and $4,500 in 2021.

The Teddy Bear Caper offered companies the chance to sponsor a teddy for patients at GMCH, with proceeds all going to the Foundation. They met their goal of 50 bears, each of which was generously sponsored by a local business. In addition to the teddy bears, the entire $5,000 raised has also been donated back to the Foundation and will fund the purchase of vital equipment to continue to serve patients at GMCH!

Thank you to the organizers at Village Media & EloraFergusToday.com for your continued support of our Foundation. Thank you to all of the local businesses who chose to sponsor teddies for our patients, we know it will make a difference to those who may have to spend time in hospital over the holidays! We appreciate your continued Giving to Groves!
