Dear Readers,

Bears Matter closes its fundraiser after 10 years and more than $70K raised for bears! The Bears Matter Fundraiser was hosted by the Country Club Centre in Nanaimo for the last eight years. Of course Bears Matter will continue to support bears behind the scenes and help with various campaigns and fundraising goals of individual grassroots organizations.

A Gigantic “Thank you and Bear Hug” to all who supported this fundraiser, both on the North Shore and in Nanaimo! A Special Shout-out goes to Dave Mills and staff at Country Club Centre, my dear friend Christine Mc and of course to Bears Matter’s ‘Bear Angel’ Karen McKee and the Warm Buddy Company of North Vancouver- without these individuals and their respective companies this fundraiser would not have been possible.
