Celebrate Bush FAQs

List of 14 frequently asked questions.

  • What is Celebrate Bush?

    It is an adults-only party for K-12 parents, faculty, and staff to celebrate our school community. All net proceeds from Celebrate Bush support financial aid. The event will be held Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. at Fremont Studios.
  • How do I RSVP?

    We send digital invitations and offer online registration. Registration on the event website opens January 24, 2020 and includes step-by-step prompts. Need help? Call Events and Community Engagement Manager Amelia Kramer at (206) 326-7760.
  • What if I cannot afford the price of the tickets?

    We want all to attend this great event! If the $150 ticket price is prohibitive, please contact Director of Development Sharon Hurt.
  • How do people dress for this party?

    There is always a broad spectrum of dress each year. The theme is Catch A Wave (think surf, sand and fun beaches or tropical destinations all over the world!) but this IS a school event so some modesty is suggested. Ultimately, wear what makes you feel ready to party for a great cause. Stay tuned for a style guide with lots of inspiration!
  • Why is Celebrate Bush off-site?

    Our party is simply too large! We typically have between 400 and 450 people attend Celebrate Bush. Holding the event off site actually saves us money and frees up our maintenance and security staff so they can attend as guests.
  • What are my transportation and parking options?

    We encourage guests to carpool, Uber or Lyft. Otherwise there is plenty of street parking around the venue and there are two parking lots within one block of Fremont Studios. The studio’s official lot is directly across the street from the main entrance, U-Park #75 with 45 stalls and on the east end of the facility U-Park # 72 with 35 stalls. There is also ample street parking throughout Fremont, all walking distance from the facility. Click here for driving directions.
  • I am new to The Bush School, and I'm afraid I won't know anyone there. I haven't met any parents from other grades yet. Should I still attend?

    Absolutely! Celebrate Bush is a great all-school event and gives you the chance to meet more members of our incredible school community. Plus, it’s a really fun party that we promise you will enjoy … please join us!
  • How will money be raised the night of the event?

    Fundraising will be accomplished through a combination of games, buy-in’s, teacher experiences, live auction, and Raise the Paddle.
  • What gift levels will be available through the Raise the Paddle?

    Giving levels range from $50 to $10,000+. Jump in wherever you are comfortable and feel free to raise your paddle more than once! Every gift of every amount makes a difference to the school.
  • What if I want to donate money, but I don't feel comfortable participating in a Raise the Paddle?

    You can donate to Celebrate Bush at any time. You can include a donation when purchasing your tickets, you can submit a sponsorship on the website, you can visit the check in/check out table at the event, or feel free to call the Development office at 206.326.7760.
  • What else will there be besides fundraising and eating?

    While the goal of Celebrate Bush is to raise money for our school, it is also an adults-only party for the K-12 community. Enjoy signature cocktails, live entertainment and a delightful dinner courtesy of Kaspar’s Catering and Events.
  • What is the flow of the evening?

    The party begins at 5:30 p.m with games, signature cocktails, live entertainment and passed hors d’oeuvres. There will also be beer, wine, and a variety of non-alcoholic drinks. We will move into the Ballroom for dinner, live auction, Raise the Paddle and few other surprises. Having done what we came to do, we will dance and celebrate!
  • Is there assigned seating?

    No. We want you to mingle and sit wherever and with whomever you’d like—there will be a seat for everyone.
  • What if I have dietary restrictions?

    The Celebrate Bush Committee and Development Team have taken into account most dietary restrictions, but please contact Amelia Kramer if you have concerns about the meal.
