What is Bay Splash?
Our annual benefit called Bay Splash is a community-building event that brings together Bay parents, staffulty, trustees and (21yo+) alumni to celebrate our spirit of generosity and invest in strategic priorities for Bay. Bay Splash is an adults-only (21+) evening.
Where and when is the event?
This year’s 15th Birthday Bash will be held Saturday, March 23rd at Bimbo’s 365 Club from 6pm to 10pm and will include a cocktail reception, full dinner, paddle raise, wine auction, community party sign ups a DJ and dancing.
Is there a live, silent or on-line auction?
Prior to the night of the Benefit, there will be an online auction that includes sign-ups for a number of community parties hosted throughout the year. On the night of the event we will continue Community Party sign-ups and a Wine & Spirits silent auction. Traditionally there is not a Live auction, however, there is a paddle raise after dinner.
Is there a cost to attend? Are sponsorships available?
Tickets to attend the Bay Splash are required and will be available online to purchase starting February 13, 2019.
A variety of sponsorship levels are available NOW to purchase that include two tickets to attend, sponsorship of Staffulty tickets, and event underwriting. Because ticket prices cover only some of the cost of food; sponsors are needed to help allow faculty and staff to attend free of charge, as well as cover AV needs, music, décor and other expenses.
Before February 13th, please contact us for Ticket/Sponsorship information.
What should I wear?
Attire for Bay Splash typically ranges from themed or cocktail to semi-formal attire, and we encourage guests to wear whatever they feel most comfortable in. Many guests choose to come in festive or themed attire.
Is there assigned seating?
Seating is open and on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage you to mingle and invite new friends to join a table. This year, after the cocktail reception, dinner will be served buffet style. Dessert will be served at the tables during the seated program.
How do I pick up my tickets?
All attendees, including those whose purchase sponsorship packages, will check in at registration. There you will receive your bidder number for participating in the auction.
I’m experiencing technical difficulty purchasing an admissions package, registering to bid, etc. Who do I contact? Sometimes this happens. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we will get you all set up as soon as possible. Please contact Charlie Meade in the Development office at (415) 561-5800 x102 or send us an email.
The Bay School is an independent, coeducational college preparatory high school that opened its doors in the Presidio of San Francisco in 2004. For the 2018-2019 school year, 375 students – from over 100 middle schools – are enrolled at Bay in grades 9 through 12. The founders envisioned a school focused on the future – not only the immediate future of college and adulthood but also an increasingly interconnected world where change and innovation are constant. To prepare students for their roles as capable, courageous and ethical leaders, Bay’s nationally-recruited faculty has developed an educational program that balances challenging academics with a mindful approach to learning and life.
