Beginning on November 1st and continuing for 8 weeks until December 25th everyone in Wilsonville is invited to join in and take part in the Where’s Wilson C. Bear Contest! There will be daily and weekly prizes.
Each week, Wilson C. Bear will be “safely” hidden somewhere in Wilsonville. (We’ll be following State of Oregon health guidelines. Wilson C. Bear could be outdoors or indoors. But you will always be able to snap a photo of him from at least 12 feet away.)
You have two ways to win:
$25 Gift Cards: Watch the daily WACC Livestream@Noon (*), either the live or recorded version, to hear the “Secret WORD.” Take that “Secret WORD” and enter it into the random drawing for $25 gift cards.
$50 Gift Cards: Watch the daily WACC Livestream@Noon (*), either the live or recorded version, to hear the “Secret CLUE” to find Wilson C. Bear. The first person each week to find Wilson C. Bear and enter a picture of themselves with Wilson safely in the background, wins a $50 gift card and bragging rights.

Who is Wilson C. Bear?
Kevin Ferrasci O’Malley, CEO of the Wilsonville Area Chamber of Commerce, announced that after a rigorous application process, Wilson C. Bear has been selected as the brand-new mascot for the Wilsonville Chamber of Commerce!
“Our Board of Directors felt that 2020 has been a very tough year for both our Wilsonville businesses and our residents,” said Ferrasci-O’Malley. “We wanted to try to figure out a way to add a little bit of fun and joy. The consensus was that we should have a mascot, a cheerleader for our Community. Wilson C. Bear was far and away our best applicant for this job. In his interviews, he showed great enthusiasm, commitment, and pride in our city of Wilsonville.” Ferrasci-O’Malley said that “Wilson C. Bear is a fun, lovable bear whose job it is to champion our local businesses and to connect our entire Wilsonville community in a fun way.”
