Welcome to Mattawan Grad Bash 2023

What is Grad Bash?

  • Grad Bash is a parent chaperoned, all-night post-graduation party immediately following our Graduation ceremony.
  • This is an event for ALL graduating seniors. Transportation, food, and entertainment are provided keeping the event safe, sober, drug-free, and totally fun. Each year the site is undisclosed to the students and is chosen by the Mattawan Grad Bash Committee.
  • After the graduation ceremony, the graduates will load buses bound for their celebration night of safe, chaperoned fun. They remain at the site until the morning when they are picked up by parents.
  • There is a huge expense attached to this wonderful, safe, substance-free party for the class of 2023! We encourage all families that are able to contribute $125 to cover the costs of the event.
  • Payment can be made via Paypal or check (made out to Mattawan Grad Bash).
  • The majority of the money will be spent on transportation, entertainment, and renting a facility. No student will be turned away, especially for an inability to contribute.
  • There are many opportunities to volunteer and assist with fundraising.


REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! Click on our registration form and pay via PayPal or check. While a $125 dollar donation is recommended to cover the expense of putting on this amazing celebration for our students, no student will be turned away for inability to make that donation.

ONLINE DONATION FORM IS NOW OPEN! Grad Bash is solely funded through parent fundraising and donations from area businesses and the community.  No student will be turned away especially for an inability to contribute, thanks to our generous donors.  The cost to sponsor one student is $125.00.

Volunteers are needed for so many things throughout the planning session and that evening. You can get involved by attending one of our committee meetings. Meetings happen monthly and are posted on the Mattawan High School Class of 2023 facebook page as well as this website.
