2020 COVID-19 UPDATE:
This has been a year of dramatic changes for our students, our families, and Grad Night. Our grads have lost so much this year and the school has done an amazing job of making graduation special for the class of 2020.
The Safe and Sober Grad Night Committee is determined to offer some kind of celebration for these graduates though Nevada County Regulations and insurance requirements prevent us from holding the event at the BRHS campus this year.
We will be hosting a special event with entertainment, dessert, games, and PRIZES!
June 12th, 2020 from 7pm to 9pm
(check in 6:30pm)
11111 Dry Creek Rd, Auburn, CA 95602
Cornerstone Community Chruch parking lot/grass area
For health and safety reasons, we will NOT allow any guests who were not registered and paid prior to May 1, 2020.
Ask any parent and they’ll tell you how quickly time seems to fly between diapers and drivers licenses. But of the eighteen years it takes to bring baby to adulthood, no year seems to go faster than the senior year of high school. Class schedules, senior portraits, homecoming, scholarship applications, sporting events, college or trade school applications, prom, finals, senior project, graduation, and finally – Grad Night.
Parents eagerly listen for the turn of a key in the front door, signaling the safe return of our newly-minted adults; but experience has taught us that graduation memories made aren’t always happy ones.
Over 30 years ago, a post-graduation celebration in Maine turned horrific as a dozen young lives, filled with hopes and dreams, were extinguished in a traffic accident involving alcohol. The tragedy sparked a nationwide movement to prevent such tragedies in the future through a hosted safe and sober graduation night celebration.
The community surrounding Bear River High School students is proud to participate in this nationwide tradition of a drug- and alcohol-free party replete with food, games, prizes, music, and fun. It’s never too early to start planning this epic event for our students. We need your participation to make it a success.
