Hockaday Parents' Association


The Hockaday Parents' Association proudly announces the 2023 Benefit, Daisy Destinations: A Jet Set Fête! held on Saturday, March 25, 2023. 
The annual gala and auction will benefit the Hockaday Athletics and Wellness Project -- good sportsmanship, health, wellness, camaraderie, and teamwork are a ticket to anywhere, launching students to limitless horizons!

Beyond athletics and wellness, we are proud to celebrate the timeless value of a Hockaday education that Miss Ela Hockaday envisioned nearly 110 years ago in 1913, preparing our girls to make an impact in our global community as they take flight on the world stage.

As we journey into 2023, we celebrate Hockaday’s inaugural “Travel Class” -- 95 years later. In 1928, a group including two teachers and eight students set sail and traversed Europe for seven months, spending time and taking classes in Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Holland, and England. This tradition of the Travel Class lasted for 10 years, with the last Travel Class occurring in 1938 – 1939, prior to the beginning of World War II.

In that vein, the HPA Benefit theme is all about “Daisy Destinations” – vacations, fabulous locales, diverse experiences, relaxed and yet glamourous environs… the era and age of vintage “jet setting” both home and abroad.

Join us for a fun trip!

Bon voyage!
