Join the Fun at Great Gatherings
Tuesday, January 7, 2020 9:30 AM

Great Gatherings are one of the many ways we bring families together to build community at Burroughs, and 100 percent of ticket revenue goes directly to the Burroughs Fund. We welcome and encourage all families to attend any and all Great Gatherings that are held throughout the school year. 


Below are a few upcoming Great Gatherings you won't want to miss! Buy tickets to all upcoming Great Gatherings here. If ticket price is a barrier to attending any Great Gathering, please email Beth Alvarez or Wendy Jezarian. 
Sip & Swag - Thu, Jan 9, 7 - 9 pm: Join other Burroughs moms for a night out at mXe (pronounced Moxie) in Linden Hills where we will learn an easy-to-follow dance routine that's sure to make you feel like you're starring in a music video. We absolutely promise it will be a blast and will make you feel fantastic! After our "swag" dance session, we'll socialize and enjoy sweet and savory sips and snacks that won't cramp any New Year's resolutions too much. Class will be taught by mXe owner and well-known Minneapolis fitness instructor, Heather C. Learn more about mXe at www.mxe.life. Plus, your ticket to an awesome evening also includes a swag bag!  
9th Annual Dads Bonfire - Fri, Jan 10, 7pm: Minnesotans don't let the weather stop them from having fun! Being a man in Minnesota adds an extra element of heartiness that can best be celebrated around a FIRE. Add beer, bourbon, pizza and snacks, great music, and most important, good company, and you have a recipe for a memorable winter night. Dress warm as manliness points will be deducted for going inside!
