2018 BCE Fundraising Gala

2018 BCE Fundraising Gala Volunteer Sign Up

This is your chance to help create a magical, whimsical evening as the Burlingame Community for Education proudly presents BCE's Adventure in Wonderland, our annual fundraising gala!  Channel your inner White Rabbit and help lead our guests down the path to an enchanted party, filled with great entertainment, dinner and dancing.  Of course, the highlight of the evening will be the Live Auction, where the goal is to raise funds to support our children's schools and teachers through the BCE.  It is through the hard work of volunteers like you that we continue to build a strong education system for our kids.  THANK YOU!      


Note:  For all those who volunteer for duties from 5:00 p.m. on, dinner will be provided in the volunteer room.  You may also stay for dancing!
