Bullard High School students are currently searching for the perfect dress and tuxedo, as the students will make memories and dance the night away at the BHS Panther Band-sponsored 2018 BHS Winter Formal, to be held 8-11 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 13, at the Centaur Arabian Farms, located at 10271 Farm-to-Market Road 2813 in Flint.
“We are very pleased to be able to host the 2018 BHS Winter Formal,” said Gary Jordan, Bullard Independent School District Director of Bands. “Not only is it a great fundraiser for our band program, but it is also a great social event for high school students as the new semester begins, allowing them a time to dress up and have a night together with their friends to make memories that will last a lifetime.”
According to Jordan, the theme for the 2018 BHS Winter Formal dance event will be “A Winter Cotillion.”
“We try to come up with a theme each year that’s not only different, but also fun and exciting for the kids,” said Jordan. “This year’s event will be like a French countryside style of event, and it’ll be great to see how the students run with the theme and how they end up dressing. It’ll be an event that will be filled with southern charm and a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’.”
Tickets for the event are on sale during lunch periods at BHS for $25 each through Friday, Jan. 12.
If a current BHS student is considering bringing an out-of-district date to the event, they must be under the age of 20 and fill out a permission slip form that must be picked up at the ticket table during lunch periods.
Jordan said the annual BHS Winter Forman event promises to be a memorable experience for students.
“The annual Winter Formal dance is a great way to ring in the new year,” said Jordan. “I expect this year’s Winter Formal to draw an even bigger turnout than last year’s event. Last year was a really successful event in terms of the amount of fun they had, as well as financially. We want to continue to build on last year’s success this year. It promises to be a fun and memorable night.”
