What is BASH???

The Huckleberry Bash is an auction-style fundraiser for the school. This truly amazing event is tons of fun and our largest fundraiser each year. It is for adults only. Although it’s a FUNDraiser, there is an abundance of FUN at this event. There is something for everyone…. you can take a chance by bidding on parties, jewelry, sports memorabilia, vacation getaways, gift baskets of any and every kind, creative artwork made by our children, teachers and parents. There is food, music, dancing, mingling………..All of the items are either created through the efforts of our children, teachers and parents or they are donated by parents, teachers, staff, and community businesses.

There are live and silent auction items in a variety of categories:

  • Classroom Creations:  Each class donates a piece of art created by a parent(s) in collaboration with art work done by the children.
  • Teacher Donations: A donation from each teacher that usually is either an item put together with help from the children or a teacher sponsored party opportunity that parents can bid on for their children.
  • Parties, Parties, Parties:  Many families are gracious enough to host various kinds of parties (ie. BBQ, Family Crawfish Boils, Adult Wine Tasting, Kids Skating, 2nd Grade Swimming, Back to School, Ice Cream Socials).   At the Bash, you can buy a ticket for different parties and every penny you pay goes directly back to the school.
  • Big Board:  These are large ticket items such as a weekend trips, sporting event tickets, original art, or a collection of wines.
