Thank You for Your Interest in the 2024 Bear Affair!


Last week, hundreds of members of the Philadelphia Children's Alliance community came together at Lincoln financial Field for our annual Bear Affair.

We raised critical funds for the over 2,500 children we expect to serve in the upcoming year, but our work is never done.

All week, we are still selling a few select auction items and the exclusive merch from our Bear Boutique.

You can also still donate to our Sponsor A Child Fund to make an impact on our overall fundraising goal for the year.

Our Children. Our City. Our Mission.

At the Philadelphia Children's Alliance, we serve over 2000 children and their families each year, at no cost, who have been affected by sexual abuse. In addition to our core work of putting children on a path to healing and justice, we have also built programs for child victims of human trafficking, child witnesses to violence, caregiver support, court support, and more, all designed to help us better serve each child's needs. We are the only facility of its kind in Philadelphia, and we work in collaboration with our partners in law enforcement, social services, and medical and mental health services.


Guests are also invited to bring a new stuffed animal to the event to be given to a child at PCA. For more information about PCA, including the ways in which the Bear Affair lets us connect with our larger community of friends and partners, please visit

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.
