Who is the Bare Chest Calendar (BCC)?
The Bare Chest Calendar is a family devoted to raising vital funds for people in need. Since 1985, the calendar
has raised millions of dollars for our beneficiaries while serving as visible members of the San Francisco
community. In 2021, the BCC produced its 37th edition featuring social distanced photo shoots taken throughout
the city of San Francisco highlighting the cities natural beauty and stunning architecture.
Who is our Beneficiary?
PRC (formerly Positive Resource Center) has been transforming the Bay Area for decades, helping those affected
by HIV/AIDS, substance use, or mental health issues realize their best selves by providing the support and
services they need to reclaim their lives.
Services include emergency financial assistance for short-term security; legal representation for access to basic
income and healthcare benefits; and residential treatment, supportive housing, and employment training for
longer-term social rehabilitation.
How does BCC raise those funds?
BCC is a grassroots fundraising campaign. A majority of funds raised come directly from our friends, family,
supporters, and communities. Calendar men host events throughout California including beer busts, raffles, and
performances. This year, many of those events have gone online and featured our incredible 2021 calendar
team who have pushed through many of the challenges COVID has created to raise an incredible $95,000.
