By now, you probably know that our Martha’s Vineyard Teddy Bear Suite is a fundraiser for the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club.

Look at this adorable face, our new mascot for The Teddy Bear Suite.  From the nearly 50 names suggested for her/him, there are some clear favorites among the voters.  So far, people seem to like Caramel, TisBeary (in the lead), Billy, Chappy and Lucy.  Is one of those your favorites?  If not, vote for yours!
