Idealease Mission Bear Fundraiser

Donate $50 or more to give a pediatric cancer patient*
a plush GUND Teddy Bear! 

Idealease, Inc. is the Title Sponsor of the American Cancer Society’s 2019 Chicago Select Golf Invitational. Our own Dan Murphy is chairing the event that raises funds for cancer research. Since it’s not possible for all employees to participate in the event, Dan is asking for the Idealease team's financial support.


For every $50 donated by an Idealease staff member, a Teddy Bear (photo above) will be donated to pediatric patients receiving treatment in the Chicago area.


The purpose of the bears is to bring a bit of joy to these children, who are facing an unimaginable health challenge.
Thanks to an underwriter for the cost of the bears, 100% of the proceeds will go towards cancer research.

Goal: Donate 100 teddy bears from Idealease employees.
