Other Important Stuff:
Ticket Price: You may have noticed that there are no options for additional donations with your ticket purchase this year. The $250 ticket cost only covers your event costs (venue, food/wine and entertainment) and does NOT represent a charitable donation. We direct your focus instead to the Fund-A-Need special appeal during the live auction and ask that all attendees please participate at some level to help BCE fund teachers.
Photo Release: By participating in the BCE Fundraising Gala on November 5, 2022 and purchasing a ticket for the same event, you voluntarily give permission to Burlingame Community for Education Foundation ("BCE") to publish images and videos taken at the event on www.bcefoundation.org and all of BCE's social media platforms. You understand that you have the option of refusing to allow images of you to be used by BCE. In order to exercise this right, you understand that you need to inform BCE of your request by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours prior to the event. By allowing BCE to use pictures taken at the event you are supporting BCE's effort to the benefit of all TK-8th grade students in the Burlingame School District. Thank you for your support!
Gift Listing Policy: Auction purchases, tickets, and auction donations raise money for BCE but do not count toward a family's annual campaign donation. Only donations made during the live auction's Fund-A-Need count toward a family's annual campaign donation. BCE will provide additional recognition space in the annual report for high value auction donations and purchases that generate more than $3,500 for BCE.
