BEARPAW KICKS OFF THE NEW ACADEMIC YEAR WITH THEIR 2ND ANNUAL BACK TO SCHOOL BASH ALONGSIDE THE TICKET TO DREAM FOUNDATION


Citrus Heights, CA (July 2, 2018), On Sunday, July 15th from 11:00am-3:00pm, BEARPAW, a global leader in fashion footwear for men, women and children, will be hosting its 2nd annual “Back to School Bash” charity campaign with the Ticket to Dream Foundation. Through the partnership, BEARPAW will provide shoes to foster kids throughout North America for this upcoming academic season.

In 2017, Bearpaw, alongside Ticket to Dream, was able to get 120 foster youth outfitted and ready for back to school. In addition to Bearpaw boots, JanSport backpacks and an abundance of school supplies to the children, the partnership created a memorable day of play at Safetyville, USA. Last year’s event brought together Good Day Sacramento, Sacramento Magazine, Sac Republic Soccer, Sacramento Rivercats Baseball and so many other community partners.

“This year we are looking to significantly expand our efforts. Our donation will continue to allow children to walk with confidence and to simply enjoy being a kid. Every boot, every donation helps us reach our goal,” says John Pierce, BEARPAW President.

“With BEARPAW’s participation in the Back to School Bash program, we have been able to a make a big impact by providing quality, comfortable, and stylish shoes to so many children in need. We are so excited to continue with the program this year and look forward to an even more effective campaign,” says Ticket to Dream President, Gina Davis.
