Building A Scholastic Heritage (BASH)
BASH is far-and-away the most prestigious gala fundraising event in all of Missoula. It is that special time of year when the focus of the Missoula Community comes together with the Missoula Catholic Schools Community to celebrate our success, and build on to our foundation for our future.
The BASH 2016 weekend opens with “Family FUN Night” on the Friday, April 22nd where families are greeted with fabulous food and refreshments. Friday evening’s event includes both a live and silent auction for treasures brought forward from the families of Missoula Catholic Schools as well as the local community.
Saturday, April 23rd is the gala extravaganza. BASH attendees are greeted with refreshments and a fully hosted dinner provided by one of Missoula’s finest catering establishments. The evening’s entertainment consists of both a live and silent auction featuring a vast array of treasures supplied by local merchants, community members and in some cases, national organizations. Each year, a Featured Artist is selected to create and present unique works-of-art as special feature items. Past artists have included renowned artists such as Akiane, Monte Dolack, William Brager, Hadley Ferguson, Lane Timothy and Julie Chapman.
All of the proceeds from our BASH celebration support Missoula Catholic Schools.
