The Soggy Bears get together several times a year to socialize. We sponsor Football Viewing parties, a Book Club, Philanthropic activities,  Trailblazer games, a Summer Picnic, Visiting Cal educational events, the new student's reception, and other ad hoc events.  To find out about our events, please check the events section of our Facebook page.  We also publish a newsletter with upcoming events.  Please sign up on the "Get Involved" section of this website to get on our mailing list.

Football Viewing

Cheering on our Fearless Golden Bears is our primary social activity.  We sponsor a no-host viewing party at a local pub for all Bear Games.  Cal Spirit abounds and "Wait till next Year" is our typical cheer. Bring your family and friends and plan for lunch, dinner or snacks with drinks. Proudly wear your BLUE and Gol


Portland Transition Projects

The Soggy Bears proudly support the Portland Transitions Project  --

About six times a year, we prepare dinner for and serve 90 men who are transitioning from homelessness.  These men are clean and sober, have a place to stay, clean clothes, and either have jobs or are in the process of getting jobs. They are so appreciative!
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?  We need cooks and servers for each dinner, and since we provide all of the food for the dinner, we need either monetary donations ($10 - $25) or donations of ingredients or something delicious from your kitchen.

Please contact Joe Nihom at  for details.
