This year we are going virtual.

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation regrets to advise that the much loved A Bear Affair Gala event at the Hyatt Regency on Saturday 22 August, will not be taking place as originally planned for 2020.   

Due to the evolving uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the health and safety of our Bear Cottage community including employees, patients and families must remain our number one priority.

However, we still want to mark the occasion and give you the opportunity to come together and support Bear Cottage through these critical times.

We invite you to consider a 100% tax deductible donation to Bear Cottage - even if just the cost of your annual ticket or table. Bear Cottage needs you now more than ever, and with your generous support children with life-limiting conditions will continue to receive the best paediatric palliative care possible.

A big thank you to our Supporters
