The Building A Scholastic Heritage event, also known as The Benjamin School BASH, was established in 1985 by two former school parents – one of them being Barbara Nicklaus, of North Palm Beach.

More than 400 guests crowded a ballroom at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens in support of a local school that has grown to become a community icon.

Funds raised at the Building A Scholastic Heritage event, which took place in April, 2013, go toward The Benjamin School and its financial-assistance programs. The Benjamin School serves children from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade at its campus in North Palm Beach that is tucked away behind a small community of Intracoastal Waterway homes. It also has a campus in Palm Beach Gardens near Evergrene that serves high-schoolers.

The Building A Scholastic Heritage event, also known as The Benjamin School BASH, was established in 1985 by two former school parents – one of them being Barbara Nicklaus, of North Palm Beach. The event has raised so much money and has become so successful that it transformed the small, bucolic, 50-plus-year-old institution into a state-of-the-art facility. It is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the school and features an elegant cocktail reception, a formal dinner and auctioning. Chairing The Benjamin School BASH this year were Charles and Susan Barker, Rich and Willa Cohen, and Scott and Shannon Smith, each of whom said the location of the event and the staff members at PGA National added to its success.

Waterfront Properties and Club Communities' agents know The Benjamin School is a big draw for families moving to northern Palm Beach County. The impeccable school's academics, sports and other extracurricular activities are second-to-none. Also, its location is close to homes on the water, homes on golf courses and homes on the ocean – all of which Waterfront Properties and Club Communities sells. The company’s agents offer concierge-style real-estate services and a breadth of knowledge about the area and its assets – including The Benjamin School.
