Over one hundred BHS parent volunteers from all four grades assist with fundraising, decorations, food and prize donations, chaperoning, set-up, and clean-up for one of the most exciting and anticipated events of the year. This 25+ year tradition has kept our kids safe on one of the most dangerous nights of the year and we could not do this without your support. Whether you'd like to join a committee, or just spend a few hours setting up, chaperoning, or cleaning up the weekend of the event, we can use your help.
