Get Ready for the BCE Dinner Dance and Auction

Are you ready for the Dinner Dance and Auction this Saturday? Here’s what’s new this year…

The program

First off, we’re going digital with this year’s Dinner Dance and Auction program, and it’s available now to download. After all, the Dinner Dance does fall on Earth Day this year. Check out all of the super cool silent and live auction items and start planning your bidding now. 

Silent auction

New this year, we’re starting the silent auction bidding at 2:00 pm on April 22, and ending at 9:00 pm. So while you are wrapping up the day’s events and donning that fiery hot semi-formal attire, you’ll receive an email with a link to start bidding. Like last year, all bidding will be done via your mobile phone. Check out these quick tips on mobile bidding, and make sure to have your phones charged and ready to go.


We’re excited to introduce Fund-A-Dream (formerly Fund-A-Need). It’s a new name with the same significant goal of going above and beyond just sustaining important resources and tools for our schools. This year, we’re striving to fund the dream of the new BSD Innovation Institute. The BSD Innovation Institute will provide expertise and resources to principals and teachers to develop science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) best practices and tools across the district.
