The local provincial government Liquor Distribution Branch store has set another provincial "bear-sales-record" and, is closing in on its most ambitious goal to date.
It has already sold 2,137 charity destined teddy bears this holiday season, topping last year’s record total of 2,036. The target this year is 2,400 and the store has until 6pm tomorrow night, to get there.
There are currently five charity beneficiaries of the program but, if any others are interested there’s still time to contact store manager Warren Mears at…250-787-3405. For those not familiar with the annual campaign here again is how it works… [asset|aid=752|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=79926b5575c05029b7a71095b7e4beb6-Pappa Bear_1_Pub.mp3]
Once again, those who purchase the bears, also have the option this year, of donating back to the LDB to add to its distribution total. Nearly 470 customers did that last year.
