One Week Left to Buy Online Tickets for the BEF Bash to Benefit Bedford Schools

February 29, 2024

Submitted by the BEF Bash Planning Committee:

The Bedford Education Foundation’s Denim and Diamonds Bash is the biggest party of the year that supports the schools, and it’s coming on Saturday, March 9.

People had so much fun last year at the Café Escadrille that the Bedford Education Foundation decided to return to the venue with a new, fun theme. This is a chance to help the BEF raise funds to support innovation and creativity in the Bedford Public Schools.

When and where is the event?                                                                    

The BEF Denim and Diamonds Bash takes place from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, March 9 in the main ballroom and parlor area at the Café Escadrille in Burlington. From Bedford, take exit 51A for US-3/S towards Winchester off of Rt.128 North. The Café Escadrille is located approximately 1/2 mile down on the left. The far parking lot is the one for functions.

How much are tickets and where do I get them?

Tickets are $55 each and can be purchased online on this site: through Wednesday, March 6. People can also purchase a “Deep Pocket Donor” sponsorship for $250, which includes two tickets, an event keepsake, and entry into a special raffle at the Bash. If you don’t buy your tickets by the deadline, tickets will be available for $65 at the door, but the deadline for Deep Pocket Donors is Sunday, March 3.

What should I wear?

There are no requirements. The BEF wants to make this one as easy and fun as possible. So, throw on some jeans and be done, or bling it up, or try a combination of anything denim and sparkly. There is no theme, so anything goes.

Will I need cash?

The bar accepts cash as well as credit cards. For door tickets, as well as the silent auction, the BEF will accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.

Will there be food?

Yes! The BEF will provide a selection of stationary and passed appetizers throughout the evening.

Will there be music?

Yes! DJs from Fine Tune Entertainment will be at the event and the dance floor will be ready.

Do I have to be a Bedford resident to attend?

No. If you have friends and family who are interested in a fun night out and supporting our schools, bring them along. 

Is this a family event?

No. This event is adults-only.

What are the funds for?

The Bedford Education Foundation, established in 2008, provides grants to support innovation and creativity at all four of Bedford’s Public Schools. To date, the BEF has funded approximately $325,000 in K-12 initiatives. This is the BEF’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Learn more at

What if I can’t go to the Bash, but I’d still like to support the BEF?

People can make a tax-deductible donation to the Bedford Education Foundation via the “additional donation” field on the ticket form:
