Hockaday Parents' Association

A Note from the Benefit Chairs

We are proud to present this year’s Benefit, Gone Country! 

Mark your calendars and join us on March 23, 2024 as we kick-back and celebrate Hockaday's “Country-Roots” in style. Join us for Live Music, Bar-B-Que, Cocktails, and Texas-sized Entertainment under the evening sky at The Hockaday School.

Get ready to Saddle Up and volunteer to round-up auction items, lasso in your favorite Special Occasions, and put in your “Fair Share” with Underwriting Opportunities.

This year’s proceeds will benefit the Ela Hockaday Fund for Faculty Excellence. The Ela Hockaday Fund for Faculty Excellence endow Hockaday with additional resources that allows the School to attract and retain the best and brightest faculty. The Fund supports professional development, graduate studies, faculty salaries, and other enrichment opportunities for our faculty.

See Y’all There!
