(presented by Gary Lambert Salon and Bears Who Care)

We toasted Kari’s golden year and helped her celebrate in bear-rific style! The evening was filled with dancing, lively entertainment, a silent auction, a Scholastic Book Fair, a Build-A-Bear station and a special celebrity appearance by... Daytime Emmy award winner, Eric Martsolf (star of the NBC daytime drama,“Days of our Lives")!
