With emotion and heavy hearts we announce BeachBear Weekend will end. There will not be an event for 2016.
BeachBear Weekend was a local event with over four incredible years of hard work, sweat and love that drew thousands of bears from all over the world to enjoy Fort Lauderdale Beach, the gay community of Broward County, and Wilton Manors.
We thank our charities; Abandoned Pet Rescue, the Pride Center, Sunserve, and Latinos Salud for their support and volunteers. Our thanks to HotSpots Magazine for their great coverage of the event and sponsorship. A warm thank you to the bar owners and staff for their sponsorship and support; Hunters Nightclub, Alibi, Scandals, RamRod, 321 Slammer, Rumors, and the various local businesses who participated in the event weekend.
A special thanks to Christian Frischele, and the men of Spain who donated the funds needed to produce the 2015. This past year was truly a fantastic International event.
Lastly, we thank our local bears who believed in the idea of creating “a cruise that doesn’t leave port”. Your support and volunteerism is greatly appreciated.
Sadly, we say goodbye to the magic everyone created by “Joining the Migration” to Fort Lauderdale.
