A Bear AffairBear Cottage provides end-of-life care for terminally ill children and their families.

A Bear Affair

Bear Cottage helps families cope with the impossible-to care for a child who is unlikely to see their 18th birthday, or their ninth, or sometimes even their first birthday.

Bear Cottage supports children from across Australia regardless of where they receive their primary care. It's the only children's hospice in NSW and one of only two in all of Australia.

A Bear Affair is the annual gala ball raising much-needed funds for Bear Cottage. Beginning in 2002, the volunteers and staff of Bear Cottage raised $25,000, and since then inaugural ball A Bear Affair has raised over $1 million to support children and families who come to Bear Cottage.

Come along to this year's event!

When: 6pm, Saturday 26 August
Where: Grand Ballroom, Hyatt Regency Sydney (formerly Four Points by Sheraton)
Tickets: $250 per ticket or $2,500 for a table of ten

Whether this will be your first night out at a Bear Affair or as a returning guest, we will welcome you with grateful hearts.

A Bear Affair has a special kind of magic for everyone.
