TEDDY BEARS PICNIC GOES VIRTUAL
The Teddy Bears’ Picnic will live on this year after all, albeit virtually.
The 34th annual event was to take place on May 31st at Assiniboine Park, but was another casualty of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba now has other plans and will be running a full day of online fun for families to enjoy.
The virtual party will include physical activities, at-home crafts and scavenger hunts, entertainment features and special video segments from the Dr. Goodbear Clinic and I Want to be a Scientist tent experts.
The virtual event will take place May 31st in posts on the CHFM Facebook page.
The virtual picnic marks the final day to purchase Teddy Bears’ Picnic 50/50 raffle tickets to support the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, which has seen significant challenges in raising funds for HSC Winnipeg Children’s Hospital since the pandemic began.
