What Happened to the Apple Ball?
A lot has changed at the Beverly Hills Education Foundation over the past 6 months. We have a new Board of Directors, new office staff, a new "nickname" with a new logo (although of course, we are still the Beverly Hills Education Foundation as we have been for over 35 years!) and a new way to raise funds.
In lieu of organizing The Apple Ball - our traditional large-scale fundraising event that honored teachers - we are re-focusing on our Core: a direct ask to all parents in our District. It is our belief that with 100% participation from our Core, we will be better able to branch out to our community at large for additional support.
Of course, our fabulous teachers will continue to receive recognition as they will be honored by PTA - among their peers and parents.
NOW is the time to support our schools!
As always, we welcome your questions and comments!!
