AYA Benefit Auction
Since 1997, AYA has demonstrated what committed individuals can accomplish – families who sacrifice so their children can attend; faculty and staff who would not want to work anywhere else; community supporters whose generosity supplies over 80 % of the annual operating budget. While all families pay tuition, we must raise an average of $12,600 per student annually to cover the cost of education.
Our students see life as a gift to be fully realized, never trivialized.
Benefit Auction Celebrates 14 Years
The AYA Benefit Auction will be held December 3rd at Mason Fine Art in central Atlanta. The success of the auction would not be possible without the coordination and hard work of our Auction Committee. We thank them in advance for their efforts in setting a goal that surpasses last year’s $185,000 raised. Once again, every dollar raised will fund scholarships for students to continue their education at AYA.
“The Benefit Auction has raised the bar year after year to support our amazing school as it grows in size and scope,” says Sivan Hines, Benefit Auction founder and its 2017 Chair.
AYA president Peter Rooney adds, “Almost every one of our students would not have access to a quality education without this support. So many individuals, businesses, and organizations donate items and experiences to ensure our students can continue to receive the best educational experiences possible. We will be forever grateful to our contributors for their incredible generosity.”
