What is BASH?

The BASH (Building a Scholastic Heritage) Gala is the school's largest annual fundraiser. BASH was established in 1985 by then parents Barbara Nicklaus and Babs Fisher. Each year, Benjamin parent volunteers, along with the Advancement staff, host a spectacular evening boasting a cocktail reception, delicious dinner, remarkable entertainment and bountiful live and silent auctions.

All proceeds from the BASH Gala are allocated to the School’s operating budget, which benefits every student every day at Benjamin. The Call From the Heart appeal that takes place at the event is directed toward a specific need each year.
