Letter: Thank you for keeping the bee bodacious


To the editor:

I would like to pass along a heart felt thank you from the Bristol Warren Education Foundation (BWEF) board as well as news from this year’s Bodacious Bee — which was a success by every measure. The crowd of more than 350 guests gathered on Saturday, March 9 in support of the BWEF’s mission was a wonderful sight to see. The smiles, laughter and positive feedback from guests in the Roger Williams University field house told a story of a community rallying around a cause and having a great time in the process.

Ultimately this event is judged on its fund-raising capacity and raising nearly $45,000 is a win for the students of Bristol and Warren. BWEF is fortunate to have strong support from a broad base of our community. I want to thank all who have supported the BWEF mission and particularly the Platinum Sponsors of this year’s Bodacious Bee, which include Jaffe Orthodontics, Roger Williams University, Preppy Pig BBQ, Fall River Manufacturing and East Bay Newspapers. Thank you all for supporting this event and ensuring BWEF’s ability to pursue its mission in a meaningful way.

Jock Hayes
BWEF chairman
