On Friday, February 22, the newly established Alumni Council hosted an inaugural event– a fundraiser at local favorite, Spats, a bar in downtown Berkeley. BCF alumni and staff served as bartenders, and the tips collected throughout the evening will go directly to the Council. It was a fun-filled evening. We were thrilled to see so many friends, family members, alumni, and community members show up to support the Alumni Council’s endeavors.
Thanks to the plenteous tips (and one very generous donation) we raised nearly $3,000! With this money the Council plans to put on professional development workshops for recent BCF graduates, organize more community-building events, and eventually start an Alumni Council High Hopes Scholarship.
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported. We hope to see you at the next one. Check out the photo gallery below!
