Build-A-Bear Event for Patients

The Centerville Noon Optimist Club held their annual Build-A-Bear event for patients and their families in May. Members of the club, their friends and guests sponsored each bear so 60 kids could participate.  Kids spent the evening selecting an animal, picking out a heart and sealing it with a kiss to sew up inside, and picking out the perfect outfit and accessories. 

Members of the Centerville Noon Optimist Club and employees from the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Fairfield Commons were on-hand to help all of the patients put their new stuffed animal together.  Afterward, the children's were treated to cookies and punch. There was no shortage of smiles and laughter the entire night.
