UAAC Bear Down Luncheon

Thank you for your interest in the University of Arizona Arthritis Center's Bear Down Luncheon.  For the health of our community and in accordance with CDC and University recommendations, the Bear Down Luncheon will be held at a later date to be announced.  We thank you for your understanding.

Each year, the University of Arizona Arthritis Center (UAAC) is honored to partner with Wildcat Athletics to present the Bear Down Luncheon.  The Center's signature event features an inside look into Wildcat athletics with the best seat in the house in the intimate setting of Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Winebar in Tucson.  

This unique collaboration began upon Hall of Fame basketball coach Lute Olson's arrival as the UA's head men's basketball coach in 1983.  The collaboration has helped raise nearly $2 million for arthritis research and education over the past 37 years.  An event not to miss, each year brings a unique flair while highlighting athletics programming making headlines.
