Brayden's BEARS was founded in 2013, by Christine, a stay at home Mom on a mission. Christine and her husband realized the joy, love, and smiles that a simple Teddy Bear brought to their son Brayden's face. They realized that every child needed to experience the same joy, love and smiles that their son experienced when cuddling with a Teddy Bear. Brayden's BEARS was born. Brayden's BEARS donates one Teddy BEAR to a child in need, for every Teddy BEAR sold.
Our annual Cocktail Party fundraiser was once again a great success! This year's honoree is Stella Spanakos, founder and supporter of organizations for the housing, training and employment of autistic youth. Broadway's Laura Dreyfuss entertained our guest with her beautiful music. A lovely evening was had by all, a beautiful venue, good food, and great entertainment. It was a so much fun visiting with friends, neighbors and family while sharing a few minutes with new and interesting people as well. For all who participated, thank you for your generosity, continued support of Hugs Across America and for helping make the evening a success. Special thanks to Hugs' dedicated Board of Trustees!
We look forward to seeing you all next year when you come join us as we raise funds to provide teddy bears for all those youngsters in need of hugs and hope when confronting a traumatic situation.
