Every spring, Benjamin volunteers, in conjunction with our Advancement Office, 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.
Saturday evening was a wonderful celebration of all things Benjamin! We were honored to serve as co-chairs of the 29th annual BASH Gala. We want to thank all of you who attended, supported, donated, sponsored, advertised and volunteered. We are especially grateful to Charles and Susan Barker for their constant support as our honorary chairs. So many came together to make this Kentucky Derby night one for the Winner’s Circle.
All of our combined efforts were dedicated to one common cause: raising the funds needed to ensure The Benjamin School remains “Second to None.” By working together, we exceeded our goals - financial, participation (with more than 400 guests in attendance), and, of course, the fun factor! It was a memorable event, and we hope each of you enjoyed it as much as we loved putting it together.
Thank you all for being a part of this dynamic community we call Benjamin.
