Support St. Jude Hospital Party and Fundraiser.

Party With a Purpose

On April 27th our  volunteer group got a day of fun and community work at Galveston beach at the fundraiser for St. Jude Hospital . It was a perfect day with the perfect weather and a lot of fun!

Markus Isaacson, Katrina Sawyer, Jonny Halow, Catalina Vasquez, Lucia Motta, Doris Xu and Tyler Nokleby raised total $150 dollars which will be donated to the St. Jude Foundation to support its mission  helping families and kids with cancer.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way in the understanding, treatment and the elimination of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries they make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors or scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.  We are proud to be part of  St. Jude mission!






I am raising funds to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and I need your help to reach my fundraising goal.

We are organising “PARTY WITH THE PORPOSE ” fundraising  at the Galveston Beach

All the gifts will be donated to St. Jude Children Hospital. We also be collecting donations at the party. Every dollar count

How your donation helps:

  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

Thank you for your support! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.

Tri-M Society in action !

Congratulations to the Awty Tri-Music Honor Society on the success of their first concert. Students Adrian Morales, Robin Dumas, Sebastian Peralta, Jeremy Jason, and Katerina Sawyer, all performed at the Vosswood Nursing Center on February 16th. Residents and staff of the nursing home welcome group of students bringing life music, singing and smiles. In fact, the staff have even requested for the group to come back to perform for them again. The concert was planned and organized by Katerina Sawyer (president of Tri-M Honor Society), under the supervision of Mr. Peguero.
Members of Tri-M put a lot of effort into rehearsals, coordination, and putting the show together, but according to Katerina Sawyer, they would be happy to do it again, for the chance to bring smiles to the faces of residents and nurses . There are more performances to come this year and next year, and hopefully more members of the Tri-M Honor Society and the Awty community will join in on this volunteering project.
