We’re winding down Bash month here at the BEF, and we are thrilled to share that the BEF Hollywood Bash brought in over $30,000 this year! This record breaking result comes thanks to our guests, corporate sponsors, silent auction donors, “Be A Star” sponsors, and of course, everyone who worked so hard to make this event a success. THANK YOU! Whatever will we do in 2021???
We are in full Bash countdown mode at the BEF! The BEF Hollywood Bash is the biggest party of 2020 that supports our schools, and you do not want to miss it! The BEF always makes it a night to remember with plenty of fun in store. This is your chance to help us raise funds to support innovation and creativity in the Bedford Public Schools. With just over a week to get your tickets, here is everything you need to know about the event!
When and where is this event?
The BEF Hollywood Bash is on Saturday, February 8th, from 7pm to 11pm. We’re excited to return once again to the Hilton Garden Inn in Burlington.
Where is that place? The Hilton Garden Inn is located at 5 Wheeler Road in Burlington. Just past the Burlington Mall on Middlesex Turnpike, take a left at the Dunkin Donuts onto Wheeler Road. The hotel is 0.2 mile down the road on your left. Or, you can shoot right up 128N to the mall exit – you will see the hotel coming down the ramp. Then, take a left onto Middlesex Turnpike and the next left onto Wheeler Road.
How much are tickets and where do I get them?
Tickets are $50 each and can be purchased online at our website – https://bedfordeducation.org/events/bef-bash-2020 through Thursday, February 6th. You can also purchase a “Be A Star” sponsorship if you so choose. If you don’t buy your tickets by the deadline, tickets will be available for $60 at the door.
When should I buy tickets?
The sooner the better! If you are planning on going, we encourage you to buy tickets NOW. It will greatly help us in planning how much food to provide, etc.
What should I wear?
Good question! There are no requirements here. Some folks love to dress the theme, some don’t – perfectly fine! Some may choose the glamour of Oscar Night, but you can also dress as your favorite celebrity or movie character, we love a mix of funny and fancy ideas! Think all things Hollywood, be a director or even a paparazzi, or just dress like you’re going to the movies – anything goes, it’s just a party!
Trust us, a good time will be had by all no matter what you are wearing!
Will I need cash?
The bar is cash only, but we will accept all major credit cards, cash, or checks for the silent auction and tickets at the door. There is an ATM at the venue.
Will there be food?
Yes! We will provide a selection of stationary and passed appetizers throughout the evening.
Do I have to be a Bedford resident to attend?
No. If you have friends and family who are interested in a fun night out and supporting our schools, bring them along. The more the merrier!
Is this a family event?
No. This event is adults-only.
What are you raising funds for anyway?
Great question! The Bedford Education Foundation, established in 2008, provides grants to support innovation and creativity at all four of Bedford’s Public Schools. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, so we need YOUR HELP to continue being able to support such wonderful grant programs. Find out more about us at bedfordeducation.org.
What if I can’t go to the Bash, but I’d still like to support the BEF?
Thanks! You can make a tax-deductible donation to the Bedford Education Foundation here.
I have a question about your event. Who should I contact?
Send an email to BEF President Jen Kelley at email@example.com and she will be happy to answer any questions.
We hope to see you there!

The incredible success of our Roaring 20s Casino Night was due in large part to the amazing support of our business sponsors. Thank you all! Whether longtime partners or new to the BEF this year, these local businesses came out in full force both through their generous sponsorships and at the Bash itself! We cannot thank you enough for all that you for our schools!both through their generous sponsorships and at the Bash itself! We cannot thank you enough for all that you for our schools!
The silent auction at the Bash was not only a beautifully decorated element of our Roaring 20s theme, but it also showcased many generous donations from local businesses and Bedford residents. As a result, we were able to raise even more funds for future grants for our schools! A huge thank you to all of these donors for their support this year!
We were so fortunate to have these wonderful Bedfordites as table sponsors this year. Thank you all for your support and generosity! With your help, the BEF looks forward to another successful year of funding creative and innovative initiatives in all four Bedford schools. What a special addition to the Bash you were!
