Bear Wear is a beloved holiday tradition—a festive display of cuddly teddy bears dressed up in fabulous costumes by local sponsors, businesses, organizations, and individuals.

The Christmas 2015 event marks the 15th year of the event!  Since 2001, Bear Wear has raised $435,000 for the Foundation to support children with disabilities and health challenges. Please help us reach our 2015 goal of raising $65,000—a milestone of half a million dollars, all thanks to the generosity of people like you!

When: Tuesday, November 24 to Sunday, January 3

Where: Hotel Grand Pacific, 463 Belleville St

In conjunction with Bear Wear, Children’s Health Foundation are holding a WestJet raffle for a round-trip flight for two anywhere WestJet flies. Buy your tickets here.

Funds raised through the raffle and at Bear Wear will help families stay at Jeneece Place when they must travel to Victoria for their child’s medical care.
