Even though Christmas has past, it's never too late to give someone a teddy bear or a doll they always dreamed of having.
And their wish came to reality Sunday afternoon at the Lafayette Hotel.
The Marietta Area Teddy Bear Fund held its 23rd annual Teddy Bear and Doll Show and Sale.
Kids and parents came out to see various dolls and stuffed animals from 35 vendors.
Raffle and door prize drawings also took place at the event as people had a chance to receive a collectable doll.
"They come and ask where a certain vendors is, a certain sales person is and they like exchanging stories. We get the room packed all the time with vendors and with customers coming in, so it's a popular place to be and brings a lot of smiles on people's faces," says Teddy Bear and Doll Show and Sale Coordinator, Anna Vukovic.
All proceeds will go to the Marietta Area Teddy Bear Fund that will help keep kids at bay while in the hospital.
If you would like to make a donation, please send it to:
