Every year, teddy bears costumed and posed like Broadway characters are auctioned off to the highest bidder to raise funds for the charity. Often, the bears are signed by the actors who originated the roles. Here is a look at the second batch of Broadway Bears, with more to follow during the week, leading up to the auction on Feb. 11 at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in Times Square.
