What is The Honey Bash?

Since the beginning of The Bee Foundation, we have hosted The Honey Bash. 2023 will be extra special because it will be our 10 year celebration!

Honey Bash Speakers.

Each year we have a different speaker share their story with our guests of how their lives have been impacted by brain aneurysms. Meet our speakers and learn more about their stories.


Kavita Basi

She was treated with 4 brain operations. There is a 50% survival rate with the remainder of those who do survive having serious disabilities like hearing, difficulty walking, partially paralyzed and brain damage.

Amy Leigh Horan

Amy Leigh Horan is a playwright, photographer, and PR professional who currently lives in Washington, DC. We are so pleased to have Amy at this year’s 5th Annual Honey Bash Gala as one of very special guests

Tatum Gordon

Tatum Gordon and her boyfriend, Dylan Hopp, were months away from some exciting events – they had just picked out engagement rings and were preparing for the opening of their second Clean Juice Bar in St. Petersburg, Florida. Then the unimaginable happened — Dylan suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and passed away at the age of 25.

Zac Yezzi

I was working in one of the bedrooms at the house and when I stood up from my desk, I started to sweat, developed a severe migraine, and suddenly lost the ability to see or move the right side of my body... I knew something was seriously wrong...I was given a CT scan that revealed I had a large 7.5cm hemorrhage on the left side of my brain.
