This event was started by the director of the Florence American Legion Riders in 2010 to “help put a smile on a child’s face when experiencing a visit to the hospital or emergency room.” This event has become a tradition for the community. In the past ten years, more than 30,000 bears have been donated, creating 30,000 smiles on a child’s face.
According to event organizers the American Legion Post exceeded its goal of 3,000 bears last year and has high hopes of exceeding that goal this year as well.
