Cairo NY Bears

Cairo NY Bears Community Art Project 

Cairo ​Bears ​will one again grace ​the ​streets ​of ​Cairo, ​Round Top, ​Purling, Acra, ​South ​Cairo, ​and ​South ​Durham. ​The ​Cairo NY Bears Community Art Project is  ​a ​fundraiser that will benefit Cairo ​Development ​Foundation’s Main Street Revitalization projects. The Bears will be on display from Memorial​ ​Day​ ​weekend in May through Labor Day in September of 2019.

Following ​their ​summer ​on ​the ​streets, ​the ​bears ​will be ​auctioned ​off ​at ​our ​Cairo ​Bears ​Auction ​and ​Gala on Saturday September 28, 2019. ​

In ​profound ​appreciation ​for the ​work ​done ​by ​our ​artists, ​they ​will ​receive ​a ​25% ​share ​of ​the auctioned ​gross ​amount. ​The ​net ​proceeds ​will ​go ​towards ​the ​Cairo ​Development ​Foundation ​for future ​projects ​to ​beautify ​and ​improve ​the ​Town ​of ​Cairo ​and ​promote ​a ​business ​friendly atmosphere ​in ​our ​community.
