by Accidental Bear

Say Wahhhh? Let me wrap my head around this, Close Encounters of the Bear Kind IBR. This is going to needs some explaining. I’m interested, intrigued and incapable of decsribing what this event is. < Hold Please>

Ok, this is what I have for you;

International Bear Rendezvous is an annual gathering of bears and bear-lovers held in San Francisco. It is hosted by the Bears of San Francisco, who conceived of Rendezvous as a weekend of fun and fundraising. The event fosters a sense of community among participants while at the same time raising money for agencies serving gay and HIV communities at local, state, and national levels. Fundraising is accomplished through sales of registration packages ,raffles, auctions, and direct donations from participants and the community. Since the first Rendezvous in 1995, net proceeds have resulted in donations totaling over $500,000 to many non-profit organizations.
