BEF Winter Bash

photoThanks for making the Bash a Success!

Our Winter Bash at Waxy O’Connors on December 1 was a great success.  We raised over $12,000 to support creativity and innovation in the Bedford Public Schools by auctioning and raffling over 70 items, including airline tickets, front row Red Sox tickets, a gourmet dinner at Fitch Tavern, and a number of themed baskets.  One lucky attendee walked away with a brand new iPad Mini from our $5 raffle.

The BEF would like to thank the students, parents, teachers, and leaders of the Bedford Public Schools who helped support the night’s event.  We are especially appreciative of the generous donations by many local businesses and residents who helped provide so many opportunities to raise money and awareness of BEF’s mission during the night.

Please mark your calendars for next December for our annual Winter Bash, where we will again gather to celebrate and support the students and teachers of the Bedford Public Schools.
