The Deep End

Passionate for our community, Joe Mannetti, Mister International Daddy Bear 2009, shared a story about how his family migrated from Italy seeking a better life after the war. Thats the reason why he started raising funds for Immigration Equality, along to Dan Jimenez, Mister New York Unlimited Bear 2018, George Williams, Mister New York Unlimited Cub 2018 and Jed Ryan, Mister North American Bear 2012.
