2017 Awty Gala - Circo Del Sol

Gala Chairs Patti Gil, Talia Kallop, and Joanna Strachan hosted a celebration of Awty at the 2017 Gala, Circo Del Sol, on Saturday, March 4, 2017, at Silver Street Studios. Over 575 guests came out to support the school and had a mystical, magical, and awe-inspiring evening, complete with La Hora Loca. The evening featured a sumptuous seated dinner (thanks to Cordua Catering), live auction, amazing entertainment, and music that kept the audience on their feet until 1:00 a.m.
