The North Country Bears are thrilled to annouce the fundraising results of the second annual Octobear Dance held this past Saturday, October 14, 2006 at the Ballentine VFW Club in Minneapolis.

Between the dance and the silent auction we raised $2200 for District 202 here in Minneapolis!

Thanks to everyone who participated and volunteers, especially: 

  • The Silent Auction committee of John Livingston, Dean Smith, Darwin Luckinbill, David Potter & Joel Mixon.
  • Bruce Christensen and his partner George Page for donating  services of the DJ for the night and driving down from Duluth
  • Mike McDonald, Chuck, Mark Emerson, Hung Truong, for helping set up for the dance and helping tear down at the end of the night.
  • Brian Mangin of Start Spark Communications for donating the ad for Lavender for the dance.
  • John Kropp for designing the poster for the dance and silent auction.

It's great that the bears in this community care and made a fun night even better.  You all should be proud to be part of a this group.  Again thanks to all of you who have helped in any way.
