Bear’ly Open XVII

February 2 – 3, 2024, White Bear Lake, MN

Golf on Ice Event

Join us on the frozen shores of White Bear Lake on February 3, 2024 for a round of golf benefitting the White Bear Area Food Shelf! Enjoy two custom-designed, 9-hole courses with your group of friends. Bring your own creative “golf club”, a hockey stick, broom, tennis racket, or anything that will hit a tennis ball. Come dressed up for the best costume contest and spend time in the Tent City for beverages and treats from local businesses and organizations. Tickets are $35 each and you may order up to 20 tickets at a time. Please select your tee time ticket for either 11:30 am or 1:00 pm. The BEAR’ly Open is an official event of the 2024 Saint Paul Winter Carnival.

Community Dance

Kick off the fun at the Community Dance on Friday night at the White Bear Country Inn. The evening begins with a social hour of fun games and activities, free hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar featuring our signature “Bearlytini” cocktail. Then dance the night away to live music by a local band.

Online Auction

Can’t join us in person? You can still help by participating in our silent auction where you will find many gifts and experiences donated by local businesses and community members. You’re sure to find something you want. Or simply click the donate button if you just want to support this worthwhile cause. All your generous donations bring us closer to our goal.

Silent Auction basked with wine, crackers and chocolate.

Giving Back to the Community

The BEAR’ly Open is coordinated in partnership with The Rotary Club of White Bear Lake and White Bear Events to raise money for the White Bear Area Food Shelf. During these difficult economic times, the the issue of food insecurity has increased to record levels. In our 17th year, we continue our mission to raise money in support of those in need while we “Claw” our way towards our goal of $3,000,000 worth of food purchased!

So come show your hardy Minnesota spirit and join your friends, neighbors and a few local celebrity mascots for a weekend of golf, music, food and fun – all while supporting your local White Bear Area Food Shelf.
