There are many ways you can get involved and help support Bear Cottage and the very special children and their families that visit us. Whether it be dressing up as your favourite superhero, running, walking or even having dinner, there are plenty of things that you can do! Check out some upcoming events that you, your club, school or company could get involved with:
Congratulations to our three lucky winners of our "Dinner with Fast Ed" prize that was drawn at the Better Homes and Gardens Expo this past weekend.
Fast Ed phoned the winners at the end of each day to let them know that he would be coming to their house to create a culinary extravaganza for 8 people. They are:
- Claire on Friday 20 September
- Gabrielle on Saturday 21 September
- Kathy on Sunday 22 September
Thank-you to all those wonderful supporters who bought tickets in support of Bear Cottage, we greatly appreciate your support.
And a big thank-you to Fast Ed for his untiring support and compassion for Bear Cottage.
The Bear Cottage Wishing Tree at Dee Why Grand
Thank you for supporting the Wishing Tree at Dee Why Grand Shopping Centre. At Bear Cottage we are especially grateful to Dee Why Grand for dollar matching your contributions.
All proceeds from the Wishing Tree will be allocated to respite services at Bear Cottage which will benefit many families caring for a child with a life limiting illness.
The families who stay at Bear Cottage for respite, palliative care and end of life care, do so for free. Our current operating costs are $3.2million per year and we rely on community and corporate support to reach this target.
At Bear Cottage, we cannot add years to their lives, but we can add life to their years.
