What is The Honey Bash Gala?

The Honey Bash Gala is a longstanding tradition of The Bee Foundation, with the first Honey Bash marking the launch of the organization in 2014. It’s not just a Gala….it is a celebration of all the lives who have been impacted by this devastating disease and an opportunity to raise critical awareness that will and has saved lives.

The 2023 Honey Bash is an exceptional year as it marks the 10th Anniversary of The Bee Foundation….10 years of Brain Aneurysm Prevention….AND the first in-person Honey Bash since 2019. We cannot wait to cheers with you, bid on silent and live auction items with you, reflect on brain aneurysm stories with you and last but not least…cut a rug on the dance floor with CTO Midtown Express!

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.
