Birmingham Education Foundation BBQ

The BEF (Birmingham Education Foundation) raises private funds from the community to ensure academic excellence and innovation in the Birmingham Public Schools District. The BEF held a casual outdoor fundraiser on the grounds Kreger House in Franklin. The evening included music, full BBQ dinner and beverages from Griffin Claw Brewing Company. The money raised from the evening will support grants to teachers and staff with innovative ideas, helping them to provide the highest quality education possible to every child enrolled in Birmingham Public Schools.
