Among the top earners at the event, which was hosted by Bryan Batt (La Cage aux Folles) and featured Lorna Kelly as the auctioneer, were the Wicked Glinda bear ($6,000) and the Bombay Dreams Rani bear ($4,000). This year's auction featured more than 40 specially costumed bears.
Celebrities in attendance included Mary Bond Davis (Hairspray), who introduced a bear based on Gregory Hines' character from Jelly's Last Jam; Dame Edna Everage, who posed for photos with the bear bearing her likeness; Delta Burke (Steel Magnolias), who introduced the Sutton Foster bear from Thoroughly Modern Millie, in which Burke was also featured; and Doris Eaton Travis, who presented the bear dressed as a showgirl from The Ziegfeld Follies of 1919, in which Travis herself appeared.
