Bing Children’s Fair 2016

By Sandi Gedeon, Business Manager 

On Sunday, May 22, 2016, more than 600 Bing Nursery School families, current and alumni, spent the day at the school enjoying the annual Bing Children’s Fair. Fairgoers were entertained by The Bing School Band, composed of Bing parents, teachers and associate director Beth Wise on the guitar; the Mariachi Cardenal de Stanford; and the Stanford Mendicants. The Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band closed the fair and was a huge hit with children and adults. 

Over 200 parents prepared goods for the bake sale and the food booths. Cupcakes, brownies and sweets of all kinds were a hit, and nobody could pass up a taste from the wide variety of food, from American macaroni and cheese to sushi, Greek salad, Indian samosas and more. In addition, many businesses made donations, including food (especially cupcakes for our cake walk), volunteers to help staff the fair, as well as cash. Special thanks to our generous donors: Cheesecake Factory, DAVIDs- TEA, Gerry’s Cakes, GNT Group, Grocery Outlet, Kathy’s Kreative Kakes, Martha’s Pastries, Oren’s Hummus – Belmont, Pizza My Heart, Sigona’s Farmers Market, Sprinkles, SusieCakes, TaskRabbit, Tava Indian Kitchen, The Dessert Studio, Tin Pot Creamery, Zume Pizza, the Walker family and many Stanford sororities and fraternities. 

On the morning of the fair, approximately 200 alumni families joined the Bing staff for breakfast. It was wonderful to see and talk to so many alumni children, as well as their parents, some of whom are Bing alumni themselves.
