A Bear Affair Gala is back in 2023 to raise critical funds to support paediatric palliative care programs at Bear Cottage – the only children’s hospice in NSW. We hope you will join us for this very special event.

About A Bear Affair

A Bear Affair is an annual gala dinner proud to raise critical funds in support of the paediatric palliative care programs at Bear Cottage – the only children’s hospice in NSW. 

Held annually at an iconic Sydney venue, A Bear Affair hosts guests for a sit down, catered event with funds raised through a variety of activities such as live and silent auctions, pledging, donations, raffle draws and sponsorship opportunities.   

Join us for this highly anticipated Gala to help make a difference in the lives of kids with life-limiting conditions.
