Annette Funicello will be offering a new line of collectible bears on QVC May 17 (1-2 a.m.) and May 16 (11 p.m.-12 a.m. MT, 10-11 p.m. PT).
A special bear named "Hope" will be offered for $5 to anyone who buys an Annette Bear during the show. 100% of the sales of "Hope" will be donated to the Society.
Viewers will be able to "meet" her daughter, Gina, who will share some of her experiences as a child of a parent with MS. Gina is a team captain of Annette's Amazing Angels at the Southern California Chapter. In April she walked in Los Angeles to raise money for the Society along with fellow Annette's Amazing Angel teams in New York, Orange County, and Tulsa (team headed by Annette's son, Jason).
