Frequently Asked Questions
So, you’re hosting a Spring Fling. What exactly is that?
We’ve come to think of it as a Party with a Purpose! Our annual B.F. Day Elementary School Spring Fling is a cocktail party and mini-auction that supports teachers, arts education, literacy enrichment, and other programs at Fremont’s only public school.
This is one of the primary fundraisers the B.F. Day PTSA holds every year, so we work hard to secure some of the best auction items with goods and services donated from businesses all over the community. Plus, many B.F. Day families contribute fun experiences like a personal chef, vacation rentals, and lots, lots more.
When is this happening?
Saturday, March 22, 2014. Beginning at 6:30 pm and wrapping up at 10:00 pm. Mark your calendars and save the date!
Roxy’s Backdoor. 462 N 36th St., in lower Fremont. We held the event at Roxy’s last year for the first time and loved it, so we’re happy to call it our Spring Fling space!
Who can come?
Anyone (21 and over) can come! This is not just limited to B.F. Day parents, but anyone who:
• likes to be involved in the community
• cares about the arts and science as a part of education
• enjoys a cocktail now and then
• likes to eat food
I see you mentioned cocktails and food.
Yes, yes I did.
Included in the price of admission are heavy hors d’oeuvres and drink tickets.
Is there going to be an auctioneer?
No, this is going to be a silent auction where you write your bid on a bidding sheet. There are going to be two rounds of bidding, as well as a “buy it now” board where you can just buy an item outright. Not to mention the Golden Raffle.
What the heck is a Golden Raffle?
Only the greatest thing ever! In this raffle, exactly 40 tickets are sold for $50 each. The person who holds the winning ticket may walk up to the auction table, and choose any item. Is that sweet or what?
Is the Boys and Girls Club going to be open?
No. The Boys and Girls Club at B.F. Day will not be open during this time. Childcare is up to you, so book your babysitters!
Do I need to register or anything?
Please RSVP by buying your tickets today!
Knowing who to expect helps us prepare information in our auction system. Also, it is within the realm of possibility that this event could sell out, so don’t delay. Another reason to RSVP sooner rather than later is that buying in advance will save you a bit of money. Tickets before March 14 are $45 per person ($35 for advance tickets purchased by B.F. Day staff). After March 14, the price is $60.
See you there!
