SELINSGROVE — It’s “Paws for a Cause” to benefit Pennsylvania Cystic Fibrosis, Inc. (PACFI), or it could be “Bears, Books, and Bling,” or just simply another way for people to buy their very own Burke P. Bear, the Ambassador of Love, who just finished his tour of all 50 states.
Bob and Linda Derr will be at Uniquely Sakura in Selinsgrove from 3 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11. The Derr’s will have the new collector’s edition of Burke P. Bear available along with Bob Derr’s book, Burke’s Tour. Both the bear and/or the book will be signed. Burke P. Bear was named after the Derr’s son, Burke, who died due to cystic fibrosis (CF) in 1997.
“We’re grateful that Cheri invited us to do this signing,” Derr said, “and it will be the first introduction of the new Burke P. Bear in this area.” Cheri DiSiena is the owner of Uniqely Sakura.
