Houston’s Premier PK3 – 12th Grade International Day School

2020 Awty Gala - Feria de Sevilla

What an incredible night February 29 was for Awty's 2020 Gala, Feria de Sevilla! The Revaire transformed into a Spanish street festival to celebrate Southern Spain.

how much did we raise

was there anything specific, memorable, or record breaking about it

Our guests were greeted at The Post Oak Hotel by the sounds of a mariachi band, dined on a three-course meal while listening to the talented duo of Charlie + Lois, and celebrated and generously supported our wonderful school during the live auction.

We are incredibly happy to report that thanks to everyone's efforts, we raised $674,981 for Awty!

On February 29, 2020, The Revaire, owned and operated by renowned Houston caterer A Fare Extraordinaire, will be transformed into our very own Spanish street festival, as we raise money in support of the wonderful school that we love.
