Valley family holds teddy bear fundraiser for son's first birthday

A Brownsville family celebrated their 1-year-old son TMs birthday in an unconventional way.

Betty Barckholtz told Action 4 News that she asked party guests to donate teddy bears to a local non-profit organization.

Attendees at Aiden Barckholtz TMs first birthday party brought teddy bears for CASA, a local group that helps abused children.

A total of 50 guests brought 100 teddy bears to the organization, which uses the stuffed animals to bring comfort to traumatized children.

Betty Barckholtz said he wanted her son to learn about giving even at a young age.
