Amanda Ng of Royal Palm Beach will compete at the National Jr. Ambassador Pageant as Florida’s pre-teen, a competition that encourages girls to help their community and to encourage others to join in.
Ng will hold a “Share a Care” event Friday, May 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Build-A-Bear Workshop in the Mall at Wellington Green. Ng is looking to raise 100 bears for the Children’s Cancer Center in Tampa. The center has new patients daily, and she wants give these kids the strength to fight. Bears start at just $10.
Build-A-Bear allows the bear maker to make a wish with a heart that is put into each bear made. Ng is hoping for the wish to help a patient beat cancer. Your child will have his/her photo taken with the bear and put on a special postcard that will go with the bears to their new owners. For more information, e-mail Amanda’s mother Sandi Ng at firstname.lastname@example.org.
