2020 Bash Update!

2020 Bash Update

We care about the safety and well-being of our community and want to ensure that ASAP is acting responsibly to help end this pandemic. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Basil’s Big Bash, which was scheduled for June 12, 2020. Although we won’t be gathering in person, we are together in spirit! Once we are through this community health crisis, we will be reaching out with more information how we will carry the spirit of The Bash into other fundraising opportunities.

We are incredibly grateful to our early event sponsors, most of whom are so generously contributing their sponsorship dollars to our General Fund where we need it the most.
