The Bash on Buffalo

Greetings, friends of Dowling Catholic. Our biggest fundraising event of the year, The Bash Online, is scheduled for April 17, 2021. We are happy to announce that the 37th annual Bash will feature many new additions as well as some of our Maroon favorites during this virtual event.

The Bash Online will showcase a silent and live auction with over 100 items, a mystery wine and bottle pull, restaurant row, college sweatshirt boutique, all cash prize raffle drawings and more! We would not be able to offer all of these wonderful items and packages without the many individuals and businesses that have invested in this event!  We are immensely grateful and humbled by your generosity. Thank you!

The committee has been busy planning and new items will be added frequently so stay tuned. Watch for updates and activities that you won’t want to miss. Details on how to participate will be emailed, posted on our website, and shared on social media. 

We look forward to bringing together our Dowling Catholic community to show support, keep our students learning and growing, and help those families impacted by the continued health crisis. Proceeds will be used to provide tuition assistance and other support to our Dowling Catholic families in need of our help during these challenging times.


All CASH Raffle prizes: One $6,000 prize, one $2,500 prize and one $1,500 prize. Winners need not be present to win. Must be 21 to participate. Drawing will be held on April 17, 2021. 

Tickets may be purchased online here only by using a checking account and routing number. Tickets sales will end Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 12:00 pm.
