Purple Affair for the Bear Overview


For the first time in its history, Purple Affair for the Bear will be a virtual experience. 

Join the Bear Necessities Young Professionals Board as we host our annual Purple Affair for the Bear on Saturday, May 22nd, 2021. We curated event packages to ensure you can celebrate with us from the comfort of your home -- whether you are in Chicago or somewhere else in the USA.

All attendees will have access to an event live stream. We will also have a virtual raffle and silent auction for attendees -- check back soon to see what items you can win!

Proceeds support Bear Necessities' mission to help kids rediscover their childhood while we discover a cure for pediatric cancer. We hope you and your closest friends or family can join us in celebrating and supporting children and their families battling pediatric cancer. Please celebrate safely!

The Purple Affair for the Bear virtual program will be available for all registered attendees -- you'll just need Internet access.
