The BCE Dinner Dance and Auction was sold out for the third year in a row, with 497 parents and Burlingame school district supporters bidding in the silent and live auctions to raise more than $500,000 for the district, as well as rocking out to the 80s cover band Tainted Love.
None of it would have been possible without the efforts of a huge team of volunteers who worked this entire school year to bring the event to life. Please thank these wonderful volunteers as you see them in town or around school.
