Help Make BASH Is Golden a Success

Bash Is Golden "Celebrating 50 Years of Building A Scholastic Heritage" will be held in the Heider Center at Creighton Prep on Saturday, April 25, just 57 days away as of today.

The monies raised during BASH are a key component in our ability to keep tuition affordable for everyone and to provide $2.5 million annually in financial assistance to approximately 52 percent of our students. Plus, BASH is a great way to meet new people and get involved with the Prep community.

BASH is a big undertaking, but with the help of our Prep community members, we come together each year to put together a successful event in support of our students – and have a little fun along the way!
