Our fundraiser this past spring (2016) featured our new fun, low-key dinner format. It was a great success for several reasons: our venue was the Spanish Benevolent Society, a charming townhouse in midtown. The food was a feast with fabulous appetizers from Marlow and Sons and NYC’s best paella from Soccarat Paella Bar. The music was live Spanish guitar. For entertainment we launched our PTA video “A Place to Think” featuring a collection of student stories filmed in the BHSEC library by one of our parents from the class of 2016, Kenny Gronningsater of Key Visions.
This year in 2017, we want to build on this new spring benefit format to provide as fun, community-building, and financially viable event as possible. We will need willing hands, ideas, skills, energy, and donations.
