Awty Gala

Wow, what an amazing night we had Saturday as we celebrated Lone Starry Night and raised funds for our fantastic school! The day was filled with anticipation and an excited energy as we delivered food to our sponsors and hosted a fun and fabulous pick-up event at The Revaire for our ticket holders.  Even virtually, the evening's event did not disappoint.  From enjoying a delicious catered meal by A Fare Extraordinaire and mixing up cocktails with flair bartender Jojo Martinez to line dancing to some favorite country hits and raising the stakes during the Live Auction, the night was filled with laughter, community, and connection. 

A warm Texas thank you to Ginger Arwadi, Dawn Cole, and Ashley Rice for chairing this year's event.  You three are our country rockstars!  Thanks to everyone's efforts, we are incredibly happy to report that we have raised more than $550,000 for Awty…and still counting!
