WHAT IS AN AWTY ADVENTURE?

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.

WHAT IS A SOCIABLE?

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.
