This year we’ve gone virtual.

While the much loved A Bear Affair Gala isn’t taking place as originally planned for 2020, Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation is marking the occasion by taking the event virtual!

To help support Bear Cottage through these critical times, we’re inviting you to come together as a community to make a difference to the lives of kids with life-limiting conditions.

Please 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 these children will continue to receive the best paediatric palliative care possible.

We will still have a wonderful Silent Auction and our much loved Bear Cottage WISHES available to purchase online at galabid.com/bear. These items will be available to bid on and buy until 9am on Monday 31 August 2020.

A big thank you to our Supporters

Archie and the Gale Family would like to say thank you to Bear Cottage Management and Staff. We thank the nurses and vollies for giving Arch his dignity. We are going to miss our annual getting dressed up in our finery and taking to the dance floor with all of you at the Bear Affair 2020 10 years on and it still feels like our journey together happened yesterday. Thank you for supporting and showing our family how to make amazing memories. It is an honour to be party of the Bear Cottage Clan💋❤️🌈🐞
