About the Event
The NYA Soirée is an occasion for our community to come together for a lively night of camaraderie, food, and giving. This year’s nautical themed event will feature hors d’Oeuvres stations by Dandelion Catering, live music by Wavelength, raffles, games, as well as live and silent auctions. Volunteers, sponsors and attendees all play important roles in the auction’s success. We hope you will gather your friends and make plans to join us, all are welcome.
Proceeds from the Soirée support NYA’s excellent educational programs.
“Raise a Paddle” to Financial Aid and Faculty Support
When you raise a paddle at the 2020 Soirée, you will ensure a best-in-class education for all students and support excellence among the dedicated faculty.
A great education starts with passionate teachers. For over 200 years, NYA students have flourished because of dedicated, talented faculty members who are committed to bringing out the very best in each student in the classroom and beyond. Let’s join together to enhance support for faculty in their growth as scholars, teachers, and mentors.
Your gift to financial aid will help make a personal difference in the lives of deserving students, and it will ensure that those who wish to benefit from a transformative NYA education are not left behind because of economic constraints. Each year, many families receive some level of need-based aid from the Academy. This expenditure on aid brings an array of talented students to NYA, creating a richly diverse student body for the benefit of all. Please invest in financial aid and impact the lives of NYA students and their families.
We have some exciting new live auction items this year. Check back in for updates!
