Each year the BHS PTSA champions the “All Night Graduation” (ANG) celebration for the senior class. This annual event offers our 400+ graduates a safe and fun atmosphere to commemorate the conclusion of their high school experience. Throughout the school year we conduct fundraisers to support this event. Though the PTSA budgets $10,000, we cannot fund this event alone. We rely on the generous contributions of businesses, organizations, alumni, friends and family to make this a successful event.  Please consider supporting in one of the following ways

  • A financial donation that will help defray the operational costs of the event; facility rental, food and entertainment
  • An in-kind donations of gift certificates or other items that can be used as prizes for the students during the event.  Please see ANG Wish List for suggested items
  • An in-kind donation of food, supplies or services needed for the event
  • We welcome donations by mail toBayside High School PTSA 4960 Haygood Road Virginia Beach, VA 23455 or online with Square Up
