A Boathouse evening to remember!

Future talk.

Last night was incredible. Not only was it the absolute perfect Northwest summer day (79 degrees, a slight breeze, dappled sunshine playing on the grass), but we were able to share it with some of our best friends in one of the most beautiful places in Seattle, Dale Chihuly’s Boathouse/glassblowing studio!

We were honored and lucky to have amazing speakers, including our glamorous Board Members April Sims and Jody Waits, and the exceptionally poignant Bill Gates Sr. The Summer Fellows were out in full force, and wowed the crowd with how amazing they are. And yes, the space itself wowed – a huge thanks to Dale, Billy, Kheira, Damion, Michelle and Rob (a former Bus intern and now glass artist) for making it all possible!

Check the pictures below, and watch out for video coming soon!

That's a lot of nametags...

A tad blurry, but you get the picture: gorgeous.

A few of the amazing Summer Fellows!

Thania and Tunny - they're dynomite!

I wonder what's over here!

"...and this is a pentagram..."

Care for a dip?

Many many more after the jump!

It's a bird! It's a plane!

Missing only the Team Zissou cap.

Power team!

Innocent? We know better than that!

Heeeeeere we aaaare!

George hangs out with the best people...

Bus candidate Joe Fitzgibbon in the hot shop!

Awesome board member Kasi, awesome Summer Fellow Sera!

Love. The. Summer. Fellows.

Unstoppable force!


Picture perfect!

Looking sharp!

Nice car. Also, vote!



King County Executive Dow Constantine runs the goodbye gauntlet.

Bus staff - one happy family!

Staff + some the Summer Fellows - bigger, happier, familier!
