• 2020 Arts & Appetizers raises almost $50,000

    Being our 15th year as a Foundation, we set high goals and aspirations of awarding the most mini-grants since our founding for the upcoming fall. With the turn-out and amazing support of this years Arts & Appetizers, we may just meet those goals!!

    This year's event had the best artwork that we've seen in 15 years. In fact, we faced our first-ever experience of not being able to decide on the invitational artwork. We selected two seniors art pieces, printing two different invitations and a third senior's art piece as the media outlet/promotional invitation. 

    This years live auction hit record-high bidding, and all items sold above average. Due to the generous support of Corporate and Local Sponsors helping us host the event, and the tremendous outpour of support from local businesses, community members, parents and BISD staff we were able to generate over $18,000 more than last years event!!! 

    We continue to grow and surpass past number of audience attendees and revenue each year, and we couldn't be more excited. THANK YOU for all of the continued support. We thoroughly enjoy working alongside the talented artists' of BISD, and generating revenue for additional resources for BISD staff.
