BHS-TV is a nationally-recognized television production program that has helped countless charities and community organizations tell stories through video over the last 10 years. The program is made possible through financial support from the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation.
Please consider giving back to the program that has given so much to the Barrington community at the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation's Alumni Legends event Sept. 29 honoring 10 years of BHS-TV.
A $10 ticket ($5 for students) allows for a tour of the studio and seat in the BHS auditorium to hear from program alumni who are now television professionals. The auditorium event will be hosted by 48 Hours Mystery Correspondent Maureen Maher. A reception and auction at the Barrington White House will follow. Tickets for these events and more information on how to donate are available here.
Every ticket and donation will go toward funding a BHS-TV editing van, which will allow students to cover live community events like sports, fine arts and other gatherings. For more information, visit the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation's website. We look forward to seeing you on September 29.
