The Birmingham Educational Foundation Unabashed Bash

The Birmingham Educational Foundation’s (BEF) Unabashed Bash was held at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. The celebration featured dinner, student entertainment, live and silent auctions, and games, all to benefit Birmingham Public Schools. This year’s event honored Geri Rinschler with the BEF Legacy Award. Rinschler was chosen in recognition of her years of dedicated service to BPS, including serving as a school board member, BEF trustee and member of the character education steering committee. Over $174,000 in proceeds will benefit the BEF.
