In summer 2014, Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation established a group of long-standing supporters to assist with signature fundraising events by aiding with event related needs, supporting and mentoring event committee members, promoting upcoming fundraisers, and advocating for TBCF and youth with cancer in the community. The group aptly named themselves the "Event Ambassadors", and made their debut at our Gold Ribbon Luncheon on October 2, 2014 at Four Seasons Resort, The Biltmore in Santa Barbara. Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation is thrilled to have the backing of these dedicated and seasoned event planners and looks forward to an enduring partnership.
