Bears Care Gala

Bears Care Gala
Bears Care Gala

Bears Care hosted its first fundraising event, the Bears Care Gala, over two decades ago. Named "Brian's Song..So That Others May Live to Sing", the event honors the memory of legendary Chicago Bear Brian Piccolo, who battled but succumbed to cancer. In Brian's memory, Bears Care, through the Galas, has raised and invested over $13.5 million in critical research and treatment programs focused on finding a cure for breast and ovarian cancer and improving therapies for those currently battling the disease.

On Saturday, May 20, 2017 Bears Care, the Chicago Bears, fans, partners and individuals whose lives have been touched by cancer, will gather in the United Club at Soldier Field to celebrate the 22nd Bears Care Gala. We will also renew and re-focus on our commitment to sustaining our drive towards the ultimate goal of eradicating these diseases. Guests will enjoy cocktails, dinner, and dancing to the music of The David Young Band along with the opportunity to bid on unique Bears and Chicago-themed auction prizes. Jeff Joniak, Voice of the Chicago Bears on Newradio780 and 105.9FM, WBBM will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Eric Ferguson from the "Eric and Kathy Show", 101.9FM/The Mix will serve as Auctioneer. Many of your favorite current and alumni Bears players will be there to support the cause. Check back this spring for updates on Bears players scheduled to attend. We hope you will join us!
