FORT MYERS, Fla. - Oct. 17, 2016 - PRLog -- New, stuffed Teddy Bears are needed to decorate the "Very Beary" Tree at the 10th Annual Festival of Trees. The tree will be auctioned to the highest bidder at the Tree Preview Party & Wine Tasting Nov. 29. Decorated with more than 300 bears, the tree is traditionally donated by the winning bidder to a children's organization.

Additional donation boxes are at Norris Furniture & Interiors in Fort Myers, Naples and Sanibel; Hilton Garden Inn, Airport/FGCU; Hotel Indigo, Fort Myers; and Goodwill's Boutique on First in downtown Fort Myers.
