Cairo Bears 2018
It’s been many years since Cairo Bears graced the streets of Cairo, Acra, Roundtop, Purling, South Cairo, and South Durham. The Cairo Development Foundation is bringing back Cairo Bears as a fundraiser to benefit the Cairo Development Foundation, the town of Cairo and surrounding communities. Make plans to host a decorated fiberglass Bear for the summer. They will be decorated by a juried artist who will be selected by the sponsor, and also by the “Cairo Bears Are Back! 2018” Committee. Bears will be on display all summer throughout the Town and Village of Cairo and will be auctioned on the third weekend in September 2018 at the Auction & Gala.
The Bears will on display from Memorial Day Weekend in May through Labor Day in September of 2018.
Following their summer on the street, the Bears are auctioned off at our “Cairo Bears Are Back!” Auction and Gala. The profits are then divided up. Firstly, in profound appreciation for the work done by our artists, they will receive a 30% share of the gross amount that their Bear is auctioned for. The net proceeds will go towards the Cairo Development Foundation for future projects to beautify and improve the Town Of Cairo and promote a business friendly atmosphere in our community.
