Hospice of Redmond Teddy Bear Tea
Each year Hospice of Redmond hosts one of the community’s most well-known and popular holiday family events, Teddy Bear Tea. This year the event will be held on Sunday, December 15 at Juniper Golf Course.
Hospice of Redmond created this holiday tea party as a fundraiser for Camp Sunrise, a grief support camp for children ages seven to 14 throughout Central Oregon. Children of all ages are welcome at Teddy Bear Tea, but they must be accompanied by an adult. Throughout the event, children and families will drink tea from real china tea cups, enjoy finger foods and pastries, meet with Santa Claus, mingle with the Cinnamon Bear and listen to a story from Mrs. Claus. Each child in attendance will receive a free teddy bear, which has been donated by community members and our generous hospice volunteers.
“We look forward to sharing this beloved event with the community each year; many families come dressed in their holiday best and it is so wonderful to see the children overjoyed to participate in fun holiday festivities for such a good cause, supporting other children from throughout Central Oregon,” said Diane Kellstrom, Hospice of Redmond Bereavement Coordinator.
Teddy Bear Tea is truly a community holiday event, with leadership clubs from local high schools participating as greeters, servers and goodwill ambassadors for the children attending.
Two seating times are available for the tea, the first one at 10:30 am and the second at 1:30 pm. Reservations must be purchased in advance for $15 to secure a seating time, and these can be made online at www.hospiceofredmond.org/teddy-bear-tea/ or by calling 541-548-7483.
