Bear Society raises $2,000 for local non-profit organization

The Bear Society recently presented a $2,000 check to the Big Canoe Chapel to be given to local non-profit organizations at the Chapel’s discretion. The money was generated through ticket sales and donations collected at the July 3 Terraces Concert featuring Brad Morgan, who opened the show, and the Sock Monkey Electric Band featuring Jim Murphy, Ellen Bennett, Tom McGuire, Steve Smeltz and John Wolfe.

With an attendance of about 600 friends and neighbors, the concert was emceed by Inside the Gates Radio host Craig Looney. The many volunteers who managed parking and checked attendees into the amphitheater made the event possible.

The Bear Society, founded 10 years ago to support Big Canoe’s Clubhouse and Black Bear Pub, is a not-for-profit club that helps drive events and activities in Big Canoe.
