Bash After Dark

The Bash After Dark, St. Stephen’s Outreach Ministries annual fundraiser, will be held on Saturday, November 9 beginning at 6:30 PM and our 2019 co-chairs Kate Jones and Allie Smulka excited to welcome everyone!

The Bash has been a part of our community since 1988. It’s taken several forms over the years and in its 30-year history, the Bash has raised over $750,000 for our Outreach Ministries. 100% of the proceeds from the event go to outreach efforts and they are primary funds for determining our Outreach budget for 2020.

Many hands make light work and we are still seeking a few more volunteers to help us make this year’s Bash a success! It’ll be fun (we promise!) and shifts are short so you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy the event.

Do I have to be able to spend lots of money to attend this event? Absolutely not! Come and have a good time and spend as little or as much as you’d like. We purposefully curate a variety of activities and auction items that span a range of spending abilities. This experience will be a fun and enjoyable night out whether you buy anything at the event or not. This event is about fellowship too not just about dollar amounts.

Can I come to the Bash even if I don’t attend St. Stephen’s, or attend regularly?
Of course! If you are new to the parish or are looking for a great way to connect, the Bash is the perfect event to attend to get a flavor for the folks that make up the body and soul of St. Stephen’s. Be forewarned: we like to have a good time while always remembering the importance of this fun evening. Invite your friends!

What do I wear to something like this?
Think “smart casual”.

Can I bid with other people on an auction item?
Absolutely! We often have people form groups to bid on items together and split the cost.

I don’t like auctions. Will there be anything else to do there?
Yes! We will have other “gamefied” experiences such as a wine pull, spirit pull, a punch board, a round of Heads & Tails and a meat raffle.
