As you may know, after 25 plus continuous seasons supporting JDRF, we have decided to expand our giving by establishing the Big Bear Foundation.  This season, we focused our events to raise funds for Rick Cigile, the Ryan Fischer Legacy Scholarship, the United Anti-Bullying Association, and JDRF (formerly known as Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundations)

While specific events were targeted toward individual causes,  we will also donate a portion of each event toward the programs listed while also exploring other avenues of distribution.

The dates, venues, and names of this year’s tournaments are:

  • October 18 – 20, 2019
    Ann Arbor, MI – Fall Colours
  • November 1 – 3, 2019
    St. Louis, MO – Firebird
