THE BASH

Each year in September we come together as a community to celebrate our students and schools with the annual PEF BASH Benefit Gala. This spectacular night of dinner, dancing, auctions and more culminates with the official launch of the Foundation’s FUND THE FUTURE PEF Impact Grant fundraising.  When our guests raise their bidding paddle during the FUND THE FUTURE auction lot 100% of every dollar pledged goes to support innovative and engaging programs benefiting students in their classroom to elevate their educational opportunities today, tomorrow and in the future!  Over the course of the 2016 school year PEF raised more than $250,000 earmarked for PEF Impact Grant funding!  

In 2017, the launch at the  BASH for FUND THE FUTURE totaled over $150,000 in pledges in a single night!  We continue to invite others to join us throughout the year to increase our giving to the schools through the PEF Impact Grant Program.  Our goal again this year is to exceed $250,000 in pledged support and with your participation we are confident we are on track for another record fundraising milestone.  To donate to FUND THE FUTURE click here.

Every child has a dream.  We believe in them.  We empower them.  Together, we invest in their future.
