This is it, Bedford! The biggest party of the year that supports our schools! Join us as we head back in time to the Roaring 20s – come to gamble (with funny money of course) or just to get out and soak up the evening – 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, don’t miss it!
When and where is this event?
Our Roaring 20s Casino Night is on Saturday, February 2nd, from 7pm to 11pm. We’re excited to return to last year’s venue–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–bedfordeducation.org–through Wednesday, January 30th. 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! Wear what you would to any festive gathering, and if you are so inclined, throw on some Roaring 20s flair – think flappers, mobsters, bootleggers, or get some inspiration from a clip of The Great Gatsby or Downton Abbey! Google and Amazon are your friends, but no pressure!
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. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be happy to answer any questions.
We hope to see you there!
