BRAVO! 2023

We had an awesome dance party at BRAVO! to kick off our 40th anniversary year. The Valley Dale Ballroom was decked out in classic 80’s style on April 22 for an evening of retro fun – and so were the guests!

More than 300 BRAVO! attendees enjoyed silent auction shopping, fun games, a raffle, photobooth and dancing to classic 80’s tunes spun by local DJ Mark Dantzer. The event raised more than $100,000. Proceeds from BRAVO! support the grants that the Foundation makes for projects and programs that elevate the educational experience for Bexley students across the School District. A big thanks goes out to all of the event sponsors, ticket buyers, auction donors and purchasers and especially to the BRAVO! Committee for planning such an amazing event.

The 80’s hold a special place in our heart as the Foundation was founded in 1983 by Bexley parents and community members as a way to channel private support to the Bexley City Schools to fund educational initiatives and priorities for which public dollars were unavailable.
