Donate an auction item:
Each year, we host an online auction and a live auction as part of our annual Awty Gala efforts. Popular online auction items include restaurant gift cards, certificates for beauty services, kids birthday party items, popular summer toys, and anything related to travel. Our online auction consists almost entirely of vacation homes and travel destinations donated by families and friends of Awty. If you have an item or a property that you would like to donate, please contact Lauren Linn, Director of Philanthropic Events
The 2020 Gala Committee has a number of outlets for involvement including helping us thank our donors through stewardship, asking for auction items, coordinating the online auction, or working with some of our sign-up parties: Sociables and Awty Adventures.
An Awty Adventure is an outing for our students with a beloved faculty or staff member similar to the adult sociables. In past years, these popular outings have included an experience to iFly, a cooking class, a bowling outing, and many other fun adventures. During our online auction, the Awty community is offered the opportunity to purchase a spot for their child(ren) at these enjoyable events.
A Sociable (frequently referred to as a sign-up party) is an event hosted by members of the Awty Community and are often brunches, lunches, or dinners. During our online auction and at our gala, there are opportunities to purchase a seat at these delicious events. Click here for more details and frequently asked questions.
