Raffle Item: Grenadier Guard Bear and Pin Collection

The “Thank Charlie Program”
This is a new program that the proceeds will go to the funding of Kids Kite Kits. So I am starting this months raffle donation to be the “first” where the money raised is going to the “Thank You Charlie Program”.
This is a Grenadier Guard Bear and he is guarding a pin collection. But wait, there is more. This bear is also a parachuting bear and has done many jumps in his homeland in England.The bear was made by David Wise for his son. David’s son grew up and found another hobby. It was passed on to Arthur Dibble (chairman of the White Horse Kite Flyers) and he has passed it on to the AKA raffle. It also has a “Tedberets”, (http://www.tedberets.co.uk), patch and pin coming with him
The other part of this package is my entire Pin Collection. There is even one from 1983 and the collection totals over 450 more.Remember all monies collected on this raffle offering goes to the, “Thank You Charlie” Program.
Charlie’s friend,
Marla Miller
