What is the BASH Gala?

BASH is an acronym for Building a Scholastic Heritage. The Gala was established in 1985 by then parents Barbara Nicklaus and Babs Fisher.

Every spring, Benjamin volunteers, in conjunction with the Advancement staff, host a spectacular gala to raise money to support the school's educational and financial assistance programs. It is the biggest fundraising event of the year for our school. The annual gala features a cocktail reception, dinner, entertainment and live and silent auctions.

All proceeds from the BASH Gala support The Benjamin School's operating budget.
