WATERLOO (KWWL) -

People gathered at Beck's Sports Brewery in Waterloo Saturday night for the 34th Annual Teddy Bear Roundup.

The night featured refreshments, live music, door prizes and silent and live auctions all funded by donations.

All cash donations and teddy bears collected go to the children at Shriner's Hospitals.

"You don't know what it is until you see one of the kids cry, and a little bear can comfort tremendously," Teddy Bear Roundup Chairman Jerry Hines said.

Hines said the goal is for the children to have their bears by Christmas Day.
