The Show Me Bears is a social and charitable fundraising organization whose aim is to promote interest in bears. The Show Me Bears is registered with the State of Missouri as a nonprofit charitable corporation. Through a variety of annual and special events, we raise money for local and regional HIV/AIDS-related charities.

General membership meetings are typically held on the second Saturday of the month, beginning at 8 p.m. at our home bar, JJ’s Clubhouse. Meetings are open to all members, their guests, special invitees, and those interested in learning more about our organization.

For a list of upcoming events, please click on the Events link above.  We have specific pages/sites for our two major annual events, Mr. Heartland Bear and HiBearNation.
