Billy’s Bar celebrates race day with Beargrease fundraiser

On what would have been race day, Billy’s Bar hosted their 2024 Beargrease fundraiser. Mushers and fans were invited to the bar to buy Beargrease gear, enjoy food and drinks, and share memories of their favorite races. Guests could also take part in the silent auction fundraiser and win prizes. Broadcasts and interviews from past years were also available for attendees to watch. Event organizers said it was a good way to keep the spirit of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon alive during its year of cancellation.
