Apple Pie Day
Apple Pie Day is our second largest fundraiser. Over the past 21 years, we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for our school by selling our "famous" Dutch apple pies. This fall, we brought back Apple Pie Day in its original format on Friday, October 15!
Our school community came together to assemble hundreds of our "famous" Dutch apple pies (3200, to be exact) all on one day! BCS parents and staff members, along with alumni, alumni parents, grandparents, and members of the community, gathered to pitch in. It was a great day of fun, fellowship and fundraising! Watch this space for news on Apple Pie Day 2022.
Have leftover BCS Apple Pie Day Topping to use up? In addition to topping pies, muffins or coffee cakes, try these recipes from members of our community! If you have one you'd like to share, email us, and we'll add it to the collection!
All About Apple Pie Day
How do we do it?
Wednesday night, you’ll find many helping hands assembling boxes and setting up. On Thursday morning, topping is made and that evening, hundreds of bushels of apples are delivered. By Friday night, hundreds of pounds of sugar, flour, cinnamon and apples are transformed into thousands of the most delicious Dutch apple pies you’ll ever taste!
Who can take part?
We welcome help from all over! Parents, staff, alumni, grandparents and friends of the school all show up to pitch in. High school students, including many BCS alumni, come from all over the area to help (and earn volunteer hours!), adding a welcome surge of youthful enthusiasm. Everyone has a great time on the assembly line renewing acquaintances, peeling, coring, slicing, inspecting, filling, boxing, bagging, hauling, and cleaning.
How can I order pies?
Pies can be ordered by contacting your favorite BCS student, contacting our school office, or by using our Online Order Form.
How can I help during the event?
Many opportunities for people of all ages are available to make this event the huge success it is. Online volunteer registration now open! We also welcome donations of food and beverages to feed the hungry volunteers throughout the day.
If you would like to help underwrite the costs of some of the materials needed to make and package the pies, please contact our Apple Pie Day Coordinators.
