Support the BHS Class of 2016 All Night Grad Party by Grocery Shopping
By: Rich Hosford
Help Burlington seniors have a safe night following their graduation ceremony by picking up some groceries for yourself.
On Thursday, March 24, Roche Bros. at 34 Cambridge Street, is holding a fundraiser to support the BHS Post Grad All Night Party. Anyone who shops at the store from 6 to 9 p.m. will have 5 percent of their total purchase price go to the BHS Post Graduation Party Committee. You just have to give your receipt to a volunteer, who will be a student or parent, who will be waiting in front of the store.
The all-night party is a way to provide the graduating students an opportunity to celebrate with their peers in a supervised environment without the presence of alcohol.
The party began in 1991 and since that time no Burlington students have been involved in alcohol-related accidents on graduation night, the committee’s blog states.
“As parents, we turn to you for help in making the Post Graduation Party a success,” a notice of the fundraiser states. “Thank you from the BHS Post Graduation Party Committee for your support!”
