PALM BEACH, FL – Rain didn’t dampen the spirits at The Benjamin School’s 28th annual BASH fundraiser, which raised more than $820,000 for the school.

While the inclement weather drove the sold-out event inside The Breakers, the 380 guests still bid generously for items offered during silent and live auctions. The highlight of the live auction was the bidding for tickets to a Madonna show in Miami, donated by FPL, which garnered $27,000.

Robin and Bob Martin and Sara and Geoffrey Peckham chaired the 28th edition of BASH (Building A Scholastic Heritage). Ray and Kim Celedinas served as the honorary chairs.
