Thank you for attending the 18th Annual BASH!

Our 18th Annual BASH on June 16 brought together 500+ community leaders to celebrate the performing arts. The evening featured themed food stations, an award presentation and program, a special performance from Cheyenne Jackson, dancing, live music, and more. BASH co-chairs Janan & Waleed Najeeb and Cindi and Damani Short honored the 2023 iMPACt Award Recipients: Betsy Corry, Tarik Moody, and the Peck Foundation, Milwaukee LTD.

Over $250,000 was raised in support of the Marcus Performing Art Center’s education and engagement programs through donations, sponsorships, ticket sales, and live auction.
