A Polar Bear Affair in Toronto
International Polar Bear Day is just around the corner: February 27th! This year, Polar Bears International will commemorate the day with outreach events to raise awareness about the challenges polar bears face in Canada’s North and across the Arctic.
We plan to kick off the day with a series of Facebook Live chats with scientists and staff. Then we’ll wrap things up with the Polar Bear Affair, a fresh new gala to raise funds for polar bear conservation!
The Polar Bear Affair will be PBI’s first gala in Toronto. It will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel, and hosted by Rick Campanelli, former host of Entertainment Tonight Canada.
The evening will also feature performances by celebrities from American Idol and The Voice:
- Ruben Studdard, American Idol finalist
- Pia Toscano, American Idol finalist
- Billy Gilman, The Voice runner-up
We’d like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our gala sponsors:
