Canadians Buy Good News Bear For Food Bank Fund
The Crimson Cougars ( Osoyoos , British Columbia , Canada ) decided to forego exchanging Christmas presents and instead put the money towards sponsoring a fundraising Good News Bear handmade by Frieda Bergen. Hosted by CHBC-TV in Kelowna , the fundraiser donated thousands of dollars for the local food banks. The TV station took the bears on a mall tour to raise funds and displayed them on-air with viewers sending donations for a chance to win a bear. The Cougars were the first chapter to sponsor a bear in RHS colors and called it Desert Darling. Pictured is Queen Carole McGhie, members and TV celebrity Mike Roberts.

Desert Queen Carole McGhie and one of her loyal subjects Crimson Cougar Ida Bergquist are shown here in the Osoyoos Times Newspaper with the BEST ribbon. The Easter Parade took place on Saturday even though it was a miserable, windy, cold and rainy day. They couldn't use the convertible because of the rain, but 12 good sports in full regalia walked in the bitter weather. To make up for their misery, they went to the pub after....a good time was had by all
