Partnering for a Cause: SBC Waste Solutions and the Bears Cares Gala 2023

SBC Waste Solutions is honored and humbled to partner with the Chicago Bears and the Bears Care organization for the 26th Annual Bears Care Gala. The event, which takes place at Soldier Field’s United Center on  May 13, 2023, is raising money for breast cancer and ovarian cancer research. While SBC participates in many different charity events each year, this event is one we are especially excited about because we are huge fans of the Bears. 

Bears Care is the charitable arm of the Chicago Bears Football Program. The generosity of the Bears makes us even more proud to be Chicago sports fans. The Bears Care organization has some amazing initiatives geared towards helping to improve the lives of disadvantaged youths through education, fitness, and nutrition programs. They also have an initiative called “Real Bears Fans Wear Pink”, which promotes breast cancer awareness and helps raise money for research. 

Proud To Be Apart of the Bears Care Gala

The Annual Bears Care Gala is one of our favorite events of the year because is near and dear to our hearts as the SBC family has seen firsthand the impact cancer can have on people and our CEO, Karen Coley, is a proud breast cancer survivor. The gala will feature a cocktail reception, dinner, and dancing. Bears Care will also be auctioning off one-of-a-kind Bears’s memorabilia and experiences, as a means of raising money to fund critical cancer research.

We are excited to meet some of the players, coaches, and other business owners that will be in attendance, but we are especially ecstatic to show our support for such an important cause. From funding clinical trials to combatting healthcare inequality for women of color, Bears Care works with organizations such as Cook County Health, NorthShore University Health System, Northwestern Medicine, Rush University Medical Center, and the University of Chicago Medicine to make a difference in the community of Chicago. We are proud to do our part in the fight against cancer. The Bears Care program is doing incredible work to improve the lives of everyday people in Chicago. As super fans of the team, we can’t wait to participate in this year’s gala.
