Celebrate Bush FAQ

List of 13 frequently asked questions.

  • What is Celebrate Bush?

    Celebrate Bush is a gathering of K-12 parents, faculty, and staff to celebrate our school community. Funds raised at this year’s event will support financial aid. The event will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 5:30pm at Fremont Studios.
  • How do I RSVP if there is no paper invitation?

    In an effort to reduce waste, we send digital invitations and offer online registration. Registration on the event website includes step-by-step prompts. Need help? Call the Office of Development 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 CelebrateBush@bush.edu.  
  • How do people dress for this party?

    There is always a broad spectrum of dress each year. Please wear whatever makes you feel like you can reach for the stars. We just want you to feel comfortable and ready to celebrate with us! For more inspiration check out our Style Guide.
  • Why is Celebrate Bush off-site?

    One reason is that we outgrew our space! We typically have between 400 and 450 people attend Celebrate Bush and we simply cannot accommodate everyone in one space on campus. Holding the event off site actually saves us money, means we don’t need to worry about the weather, and our maintenance and security staff can attend as guests instead of working that night.
  • What are my transportation and parking options?

    We encourage guests to carpool and/or Uber. 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. Remember—is it St.Patrick’s Day on March 17 so plan to come on time for the most parking options.

  • 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?

    Yes! This is your chance to meet more members of our incredible school community! This gathering is welcoming, fun, and upbeat.
  • How will money be raised the night of the event?

    Fundraising will be accomplished primarily through a silent auction of experiences, a brief live auction, and a 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?

    Fundraising is just one part of the evening. There will be signature cocktails, delicious food, a slideshow featuring Bush students, awesome DJ, dancing, and tons of fun!
  • How does the dinner work?

    There will be heavy appetizers and dinner. There will also be beer, wine, signature cocktails, and a variety of non-alcoholic drinks. There are no assigned seats, so feel free to mingle and sit wherever and with whomever you’d like—there will be a seat for everyone.
  • Will there be vegetarian options?

    Yes, there will be a selection of choices for vegetarians and those with dietary restrictions.
