What is the BPC School Auction?
The Auction is one of the school's largest fundraiser of the year, raising over a third of the funds needed for the essential programs that help our kids succeed.
Why is the Auction important?
The Auction funds important activities and programs including art, chess, music, science, math coach, foreign language, teacher development, assistant teachers, writing workshops, and a whole lot more.
Who sponsors and organizes the Auction?

If you would like to volunteer, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will contact you. We not only need volunteers to help us plan, we need volunteers on the day of the auction to help us set up and run the event.
