Lexington Center Museum & Gallery and Paul Miller Ford Join Together to Launch Teddy Bear Drive

lexingtoncenterteddybeardrive 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/26/13) – Lexington Center Museum and Gallery, with the support of Paul Miller Ford, today launched a Teddy Bear Drive. Inspired by “Polar, the Titanic Bear,” the museum and auto dealer joined together with a mission to bring a smile to pediatric patients and less fortunate children this holiday season.

New teddy bears can be dropped off at the museum or at Paul Miller Ford on New Circle Road up until Dec. 22. Donors will receive a coupon for $2 off any adult admission to Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. The bears will be wrapped and await their delivery on Dec. 23, just days before Christmas.

Half of the teddy bears will be delivered to pediatric patients at regional St. Joseph Hospitals who will also be treated to a reading of “Polar, The Titanic Bear.” The other half of the bears will be distributed to less fortunate children in Eastern Kentucky through cooperation with WKYT/WYMT TV.

Follow the progress of the teddy bear drive on Lexington Center Museum & Gallery’s Facebook page. You will also get an introduction to Titan, the giant teddy bear and his adventures leading up to the distribution of the teddy bears. For more details about the teddy bear drive, contact Krista Greathouse at (859) 227-2326.

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition continues through the holidays until Jan. 26th. Hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The exhibition is closed to the general public on Monday, Dec. 2 and 9. For more information, including how to purchase tickets, visit www.lexmuseum.com; or call the Box Office at (859) 233-3535.
