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.
