    Be a Corporate Sponsor

    Last year, The Blast was attended by more than 600 families, students, and community members. We are looking to exceed our previous fundraising number this year and hope to count on your support in this endeavor. These funds are crucial to continuing our unique curriculum, funding the purchase of additional technology, books, supplies and programming not covered by public funds.

    So on behalf of our students, we are seeking monetary donations in exchange of different advertisement opportunities. Please check the different sponsorship packages available: 2020 BCS Blast Sponsorship Packages

    We need auction donations!

    As every year, we count heavily on our BCS community to support our fundraising event! And as always, we are very fortune to have such supportive, generous and participating families.

    We made a decision this year to no longer solicit donation baskets per classroom, and instead focus our efforts on the online auction. Therefore, we sincerely encourage you to think about your network and contacts...particularly those that, without you, we would otherwise have no personal connection.

    For example…

    • Do you run your own business from which you can donate items or services?
    • Do your neighbors/friends have their own businesses?
    • Do you have season tickets to a sports event and you don’t plan to use them all?
    • Do you have a vacation home/time share you won’t need to use?

    Consider donating these or other items to our 2020 Blast Off Auction.

    Please contact Eliza Chayka at elizanc@icloud.com with any questions or to pick up a donation.

    Why contribute??

    Funds raised from BCS Blast touch every student! Regardless of grade or interest ALL students benefit tremendously from the items and programs supported by the Blast funds. You chose to have your child come to BCS, now choose to support the fundraiser that makes BCS, "A Great Place to Be!" Visit this link to read more information about all the Blast supports!

    PTSA Blast Committee Meetings 2019-2020

    The BCS Blast committee coordinates the various components of our annual School Fair, the Blast. Held in the Spring, the Blast is BCS's largest fundraiser and party of the year. Various components of the Blast include a silent auction, a carnival and a raffle. Proceeds from the Blast fund the majority of the PTSA's annual budget. 

    2019-2020 Chair: Hiba Zoya and Eliza Chayka

    Please support the Blast in any way you can – with the current funding situation for public schools, PTSA support for our students is more important than ever! If you are interested in donating anything to the auction or know any business that would like to be involved please contact the committee chair or attend one of the meetings:

    Check the WAG for meeting dates and times.

    This great BCS tradition takes a lot of people and hours to pull it off, but if we each do just a bit, it will be a great success! Look for information from your child’s room parent on opportunities to volunteer as we get nearer to the big date, or contact Hiba Zoya or Eliza Chayka to get more involved. 

    Proceeds from the Blast fund the majority of the BCS PTSA budget.
