While we are eager to bring Basil's Big Bash back to its full glory, the 2021 Bash will be a virtual event in a safe, online space. Join us and tune in on Saturday, June 5th, 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. This fun-filled hour will be full of the same things we all enjoy at every Bash!

The 2021 Bash features an online silent auction, live auction, a special beverage, and goodies. We've got a fantastic collection of items this year that you will not want to miss.


Though this year's Bash is different than any other, as usual our team is hard at work planning a wonderful event celebrating all of ASAP's successes. And what would The Bash be if not an opportunity to raise critical funds that ensure our life-saving programs and services remain in our community for years to come! Tickets and sponsorships are now available!
