Teddy Bear Tea


Thank you to those families who attended the 2019 Teddy Bear Tea!  What a fun and memorable time for all.

Held annually in December, the tea features a special appearance of Santa. Everyone enjoys little tea sandwiches, cookies, and other goodies while Mrs. Claus reads stories. The Cinnamon Bear joins the fun.

Taking pictures is encouraged! Each child receives a gift of their own special stuffed bear.

Thank you to our sponsor – Kruse Properties Inc.

2021 Teddy Bear Tea Canceled

Out of concern for the health and safety of children and their families, we have had to once again make the very difficult decision to cancel the Teddy Bear Tea 2021.

Thank you to all who have previously attended our annual holiday tea party !  For the past 19-years Hospice of Redmond has looked forward to presenting this popular event to our community. The joy and excitement on the children’s faces as they each receive a complimentary teddy bear and anticipate the upcoming holiday by meeting with Santa Claus is a magical experience for all. Everyone enjoys tea sandwiches, cookies, and other goodies while Mrs. Claus reads stories. Another favorite of the children is the Cinnamon Bear  who also joins in on the fun. The delight on the children’s faces, as they come dressed in their holiday finery for this fun event, creates an excitement in all of us as we head into the holiday season.

The proceeds from this event are designated for Camp Sunrise, our annual weekend grief camp for children ages 7 – 14 held every summer. Due to Covid 19 Hospice of Redmond has also had to cancel Camp Sunrise in 2020 and again in 2021. We are, however, optimistically looking forward to gathering again in 2022.  Because we are able to offer this camp free of charge to participants with the help of donations from individuals and organizations in our community, we’d like to ask for your support.  If you would like to make a donation and help a child attend Camp Sunrise, please click on the link below.

Any donation, large or small, to support Camp Sunrise is welcome. Your donation may be tax-deductible. Please check with your tax professional. Thank you for your support!
