Teddy Bear Picnic

This past Saturday was the annual Teddy Bear BBQ at Vincent Massey Park and it was well attended by bears and admirers alike.

Perfect weather, great food and a fun afternoon of frisbee and conversation.

Thanks to everyone who attended and who helped make this a successful event.

Here are some pics from the event:

Beards! Bears! and Beer!

Adam Frey accepted a cheque on behalf of the Northern Lights Refuge of the proceeds of the Ours Ottawa Bears’ event “Beards! Bears! and Beer!” which was held earlier this year. This is the second year that the Northern Lights Refuge (https://www.facebook.com/northernlightsrefuge) has been selected by the reigning Mr. Ottawa Bear as the designated charity to receive money raised by Ours Ottawa Bears at its various events. Thank you to all those who helped make this possible.

MOB Proceeds Donated to Charity

As most of you already know this year’s Mr. Ottawa Bear was a resounding success and helped raise some much needed funds to help rescue LGBTQ+ refugees who are being persecuted, tortured and killed in countries where being gay is against the law and sometimes punishable by death.

Northern Lights Refuge is the charity that was chosen by last year’s Mr. Ottawa Bear recipient, Adam Frey.

Adam has been working directly with this organization since it’s inception.

A cheque for $500 was presented to Adam by the Ours Ottawa Bears president Lars and the current MOB title holder Chris.

The Ours Ottawa Bears committee would like to thank all those who attended MOB 2018 and who donated generously to this very worthy cause.

Mr. Ottawa Bear 2017

Congratulations to Adam who is this year’s Mr. Ottawa Bear!

With stunning performances by the Ottawa Gay Men’s Chorus, Boylesque and the Bytown Kings and featuring a surprise visit from our very own local bear celebrity Drake Jensen, the 2017 edition of the Mr. Ottawa Bear competition was a rousing success.

To loud cheers of “woof!” from the audience, Gustavo and Adam strutted their stuff onstage while a silent auction raised money for our chosen charity (Family Services Ottawa).

A great time was had by all!
