Cairo Bears Community Art Project

The ​Cairo ​Bears ​Community Arts Project ​fundraiser ​​benefits ​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 ​​the ​sponsor ​and ​by ​the Cairo ​Bears ​Committee. ​
The Bears will be on display ​throughout ​the ​town ​of Cairo ​from Memorial​ ​Day​ ​weekend in May through Labor Day in September of 2019. Bears ​will ​be ​on ​display ​all ​summer and ​will ​be ​auctioned ​on ​the ​last ​weekend ​in ​September ​2019 ​at ​the ​Auction.
Following ​their ​summer ​on ​the ​street, ​the ​bears ​are ​auctioned ​off ​at ​our ​Cairo ​Bears Auction. ​The ​profits ​are ​then ​divided ​up. ​Firstly, ​in ​profound ​appreciation ​for the ​work ​done ​by ​our ​artists, ​they ​will ​receive ​a ​25% ​share ​of ​the auctioned ​gross ​amount. The ​net ​proceeds ​will ​go ​towards ​the ​Cairo ​Development ​Foundation ​for our Main Street Revitalization ​projects ​to ​beautify ​and ​improve ​the ​Town ​of ​Cairo ​and ​promote ​a ​business ​friendly atmosphere ​in ​our ​community.
