This event started in honor and memory of Ashton Ilbery who passed away August 13, 2011 at age 23 of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Ashton had a creative sweet soul and loved life, family, art, music, festivals, hula hooping and so much more. When we created this event, we felt that her life was not in vain, and we needed to do something more to help others that go through such a horrible struggle. So we decided to help others facing the same diseases. Ash Bash is a non-profit organization.
