After the success of last year’s inaugural BeachBear weekend, year number 2 is here and promises to be even better than the first. BeachBear weekend takes place from Wednesday May 8 through Monday May 13th with close to 30 events to appeal to your bearish tastes.

BeachBearWeekend-pic1When asked why he and his partners started this event, Bob Young said: “We started this event because Fort Lauderdale is such a natural place to have a great and healthy vacation.  I took a Caribbean cruise earlier this year and the best beach was the one we left from, Fort Lauderdale. The bear community, who, by the way, come in all shapes, sizes, and races, are a very generous group.  The monies raised through the Bear Tags and sponsorships from our businesses go to Sunserve.  We just want everyone to get to enjoy this beach and Fort Lauderdale the way we know it. We ask them to buy our Bear Tags that will let them have a great time at the clubs and our parties.  That is how the Bears can give back.  This event has been produced on a shoestring and a beach.  Have a great BeachBear!!  WOOF!

Sunserve is a local charity whose mission is to provide critical life assistance and professional mental health services with an emphasis on the economically disadvantaged, marginalized youths, and senior adults in Greater Fort Lauderdale.
