B-CC HS Ed. Foundation CANCELS 3/12 EVENT

Dear B-CC Community,

Out of an abundance of caution, and in light of growing concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19), the B-CC High School Educational Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel tomorrow’s Evening of Wine, Chocolate and Cheese.

We did not make this decision lightly. We did not want to cancel the event. Most of us could use some extra chocolate and cheese in our lives, of course, but the real deliciousness of this event is that it helps us fund the innovative, teacher-driven programs that ensure all 2,200 students can reach their full potential.

Even though we cannot celebrate in person, we would like to raise our glasses in a virtual toast to the work of the B-CC High School Educational Foundation, its volunteers, our teachers and the generosity of this incredible community.

We will work hard to make up the funding gap presented by this event cancellation and urge the community to join us in our virtual fundraiser at:
https://bccedfoundation.networkforgood.com/projects/57702-donate-today

Thank you for your support. Stay well and we will look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Sincerely,
Carole Brand
Vice-President,
B-CC High School Educational Foundation

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Educational Foundation was established in 1995 during a time of declining enrollment and deteriorating facilities at B-CC High School. The Foundation took on the charge to help improve school facilities, raise academic rigor, and re-engineer B-CC for the 21st Century.

Foundation Net Revenue 1996-2018 By the summer of 2018, the Foundation has raised more than $2.9 million to meet that challenge and has been investing in academic excellence at B-CC High School for more than two decades. With new programs and a newly modernized facility that was completed in February 2002, B-CC’s enrollment, reflecting community confidence in the school, has been increasing steadily ever since, from 1,076 students in 1995 to 2,096 students in 2018.

The generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, students, businesses, and community members has made it possible for the Foundation to fund innovative academic support programs that promote high academic standards and support success for all B-CC students. In the process, the Foundation helped bring several “firsts” to B-CC High School:
