Holiday Party and Grant Ceremony, Teddy Bear Collection
Friday, December 6th 2019 at 7:00 PM
It’s time for some holiday cheer with the Bears! Join us for drinks, dinner, fellowship and fun, including performances by two of our grant recipients – the South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble and the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida
Admission is $10 and an unwrapped new teddy bear (NEW and 12”-24” per the hospital’s request). These teddy bears, in addition to those collected at the 11/29 bear drive at Hunters and at the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida’s holiday concerts, will be donated to children who enter the Broward Health system during the holidays and throughout the year.
This is also the season when the Bears give back to the community. During our evening program we’ll be awarding grants totaling $12,000 to several local LGBTQ+ non-profit organizations! Support of other non-profits is part of the club’s mission, and this money has come directly through our members through the various events we’ve held this year.
There will be a cash bar (suggested donation) at the event. Get your tickets quickly, as we expect the holiday dinner to sell-out. We will be unable to accommodate walk-ins due to limited seating at the Pride Center. “Ticketed” members won’t actually receive a ticket, but will get a confirmation email and be on the guest list for the party. Hope to see you there!
