Past Event Report

Bar night pays big for NLR

Left to right: Adam, Lars and Pedro.

On Saturday, March 30th the Ottawa Bears held a fundraising bar night at T’s Pub on Somerset which was very well attended by lots of furry, friendly and burly bears.

You can never say that the bears are not generous because the 50/50 draw managed to net over $400 towards Northern Lights Refuge. These funds are going to help resettle someone from the middle east who is fleeing persecution and the threat of death.

Thank you Ottawa Bears for your generosity and for your support. And a big thanks to 50/50 winner Bruce for donating back his winnings. We look forward to seeing you at future events in Ottawa.
