Beach BASH 2019 - Thank You!
Posted 05/09/2019 03:03PM

Creighton Prep would like to extend its sincere thanks to the attendees, auction donors, advertisers, underwriting and corporate table sponsors, and the volunteers who made Beach BASH 2019 Riding the Wave for 140 Years a success on Saturday, April 27.

More than 660 guests gathered in the Heider Center for this 49th annual fundraiser where nearly 350 silent auction items and 26 live auction items were up for bid. Director of Events Amy Knight said that, based on very preliminary numbers, it appears that Beach BASH 2019 exceeded its goals and will be quite possibly a record-breaker.

During the silent auction and dinner, a video showcasing the brotherhood between Prep students was shown, and senior Akol Arop ’19 spoke about what his experience at the school has meant to him. Guests then raised their paddles to donate and bid on live auction items such as a dive trip to Turneffe Island Resort near Belize, a Palm Beach golf outing, a weeklong stay at a Mission Beach home in San Diego and a “dream day” at a Chicago Cubs game. The auction concluded just before 9:30 p.m.

Executive chairs for Beach BASH 2019 were Tiffany Dencklau and Lisa Gravelle (decorations) Melissa and Patrick Duffy ’90 (underwriting), Cathy Goracke (logistics), Carrie Jenkins (silent auction), Beth Kramer (patron party), Jim Naylon ’85 (raffle) and Michele Zadalis (catalog).

The monies raised each year during BASH are a key component in the school’s ability to keep tuition affordable for everyone as well as to provide more than $2 million in financial assistance annually to approximately 52 percent of Prep students.
