BHS Live 2011 was held on the Cal campus. This year, the event, Berkeley High’s principal annual fundraiser, will be at the Ed Robert Campus

Fancy lunch with Robert Reich? Or perhaps you’d prefer to break bread with both Berkeley High Principal Pasquale Scuderi and Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan? How about a getaway weekend in an architecturally stunning home in Healdsburg or a simple “tree house” with views of Tomales Bay?

These are just a few of the many prizes up for grabs at the BHS Live auction which takes place as part of Berkeley High’s biggest annual fundraiser this Saturday, 5:30-9:00pm, at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley.

BHS Live, which is organized by the BHS Development Group, raises funds for supplemental resources for all students at the school: be it to provide free after-school tutoring, classroom supplies or to allow educational field trips.

Lunch with Robert Reich?

The theme of this year’s party is “Carnaval”, the auction’s prizes run the gamut from modest to indulgent — and the party of course provides a great opportunity to catch up with other BHS parents in a social setting.

Tickets, which are sold on a sliding price sale, include hors d’oeuvres, wine and a Cosmo bar, and live entertainment is on tap, including music from the spectacular Berkeley High Jazz band.

Berkeleyside is a proud sponsor of BHS Live!
