BASH 2017

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. Every year the schools have a financial ask of the Foundation to help fund the gap between the cost of education and revenue generated from tuition. The money raised at BASH is the key reason the Foundation is able to meet the school’s financial request each year.

The BASH 2017 weekend will open with “Family FUN Night” on Friday, April 28. 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 29, 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.
