The Bash on Buffalo

Greetings, friends of Dowling Catholic. As you know, our biggest fundraising event of the year, Bash on Buffalo, is scheduled for April 18. We are excited to announce that this year we are going ‘live’ with a virtual event!

We hope to bring together our Dowling Catholic community to show support and help keep our students learning and growing, and help those families impacted by the current health crisis.

Please join us as we bring together our Dowling Catholic community for a special edition of our signature event, now called the “Bash Online”. The event kicks off at 5PM on Tuesday, April 14 and ends Saturday, April 18 at 9PM. Watch for updates and activities you won’t want to miss.

Proceeds will be used to provide tuition assistance and other support to our Dowling Catholic families in need of our help through this difficult time. Details for how to participate will be emailed, posted on our website, and shared on social media.

Our event will feature a silent and live auction with over 100 items, a wine pull, restaurant row, 50/50 raffle and more. We are immensely grateful to the many individuals and businesses who have contributed.
