Evan Wecksell is one of the funniest and most energetic performers to emerge from New York’s comedy clubs and musical venues. Often compared to comedic superstars Adam Sandler and Stephen Lynch, Evan’s act is a blend of comedy and music that celebrates the college experience, endorses internet addiction, and lampoons bad music. Last year Campus Activities Magazine named him “Hot Comedian of 2009.” His comedy has been played on radio stations all over the world including Sirius Satellite Radio and Dr. Demento Radio Show. His first album LOL is due out this spring through Uproar Entertainment. Evan is most recognized from his appearances on such pop-culture shows as VH1's "I Love the 80s" and E! Television’s "30 Most Outrageous Celebrity Feuds." For more information on Evan please visit www.EvanWecksell.com.

The BHS Grad Party has been a long standing tradition for Brookfield graduates since 1986. A completely self-funded, volunteer-driven party, over 200 parents and community members begin planning in early September for the upcoming Graduation year and meet throughout the year. Graduates are treated to an all night party following the graduation ceremony.  Throughout the night, they can participate in the Game Rooms,  Casino, Nightclub, Inflatibles, a Rest and Relaxation room, food and beverages, gifts and prizes, a take home gift bag and a commemorative tshirt.  The Grad Party is always happy to have more volunteers, gift donations and financial contributions.

If you are interested in helping in any way, please contact Amy Ferrarie at 203-775-0945 or by email aferrarie@charter.net. Meetings are held usually the 1st Monday of the month at the BHS cafeteria at 7 pm. Join Us!

These kids our our future. Support them.

Grad Party is a great event. Not only does it celebrate and reward the hardworking grads for their achievements, it also helps prevent any tragic, post-graduation, underage drinking party accidents.

Brookfield's kids don't break the law and drink alcohol. Ask the Board of Education.

Andrew, that is why I got involved in the Grad Party. When I was in High School, every year there was at least one Senior that died graduation night in a car accident. The year I graduated, 1983, was the first year the school held an all night grad party - no deaths. Thhis is really important to keep our kids safe and together. We have about a 92% attendance to the party. They have a great time and get home safe. What more could a community do for their kids?

The Grad Party is a wonderful event. My kids really enjoyed the parties when they graduated. Thank you to everyone that makes them possible.
