Bear sighting at Taste of Italy in Carmel Valley!


Did you see the bears outside of Taste of Italy Restaurant in Carmel Valley? Don’t worry, these bears are stuffed! They are part of a month-long promotion in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month for September.

Teddy BearsDavid Bono, owner of the restaurant, is doing the promotion to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer and the Friends of Scott Foundation for Cancer Kids. Friends of SCott offers programs and services to help kids with cancer and their families. Their signature event is the Unforgettable Prom for those teens that can’t attend their own proms due to illness. So please stop by and make a donation to help these kids from Children’s Hospital, and you will be entered into a drawing to win and to take one of these adorable bears home!

Friends of Scott is also hosting the Annual Holiday for Hope Gala on Nov. 10 at the San Diego Hall of Champions to raise money for the foundation.
