FUNDRAISE LIKE THE BEST OF THEM WITH BEAR’S RESTAURANT GROUP

Bear’s RG Fundraisers are as unique and fun as our menus. Since 2013, our restaurants have helped raise funds to support local schools, groups and non-profit organizations.

We take great pride in giving back to the communities we call home and would love to help you raise money for your school or non-profit organization. Fundraising events are easy to arrange and best of all, 15 – 25% of net sales generated by supporters of your organization will be donated back to you!
