Lights, Camera, Party! BRAVO! returns Saturday, March 30, 2019 and will be held at St. Charles Prep from 7:00-11:00pm. BRAVO! is where the Bexley community gathers to celebrate and support its outstanding public schools – schools that have earned national recognition for academic excellence. The annual event is Bexley Education Foundation’s largest annual fundraising event. BRAVO! attracts a large crowd, usually 500 to 700 persons − making it one of the largest events of its kind in Columbus.

Guests will walk the red carpet and sample tasty bites from local restaurants, dance to the tunes of the Big Rockin’ Blues Band and bid on fabulous auction items, including one-of-a-kind works of art created by Bexley students. This year’s theme, BEXceptional, conveys how our teachers, students and families feel about the brightest educational experience in town!

Proceeds from BRAVO! support the Bexley Education Foundation’s teacher, classroom and district-wide grants-making program. The success of BRAVO! over the past 19 years has contributed to the Foundation being able to channel over $5 million in private support to the Bexley City Schools.

Tickets are available online now at www.bexbravo.givesmart.com. Even if you can’t attend, you can still bid using your cell phone/mobile device. A complete catalog of silent auction items will be online and bidding opens on March 23rd.
