Bear And Book Signing At Kern Run

— BEAVERTOWN — Bob Derr will be at Kern Run Crafts in Beavertown on May 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to sign the 2014 collector’s edition of the Boyds by Enesco Burke P. Bear that was named after his son, Burke, who died due to cystic fibrosis (CF) in 1997. Derr will also have signed copies of his book, “Burke’s Tour,” that was published in 2007. All proceeds will go to Pennsylvania Cystic Fibrosis, Inc. (PACFI).

“It’s national CF Awareness Month,” Derr said, “and we know our Burke is proud of the efforts PACFI is making to help others and to find a beneficial treatment or a cure for CF.”

Burke P. Bear finished his tour of all 50 states earlier this year on a journey to create a wider awareness of CF and to raise funds for research. Since 1997, the bear has also toured 23 world countries and two Canadian provinces in raising over $535,000 for research.
