The Rocking Horse Gallery at 803 Caroline St. in downtown Fredericksburg is holding a teddy bear artist show and sale on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tonight at 7 p.m. the gallery will hold a silent auction featuring special creations from the visiting artists. The money from the silent auction will be donated to the Fairy Godmother Project, which helps the families of pediatric cancer patients.
On Saturday, the gallery and Good Bears of the World will present the Fredricksburg Police Department, the Fredricksburg Fire Department, the Fredericksburg Sheriff’s Office and the Fairy Godmother Project with two cases of Good Bears each. The purpose of these teddies is to help ease fear and anxiety in traumatized children.
