The Fund-A-WOW! events

The Celebrate Good Times Gala

Our Guests work hard to accomplish all that they do and we want to recognize them for their hard work and achievements. The Celebrate Good Times Gala serves not only as an opportunity for our Guests to receive the recognition that they deserve, but also as an evening for them to be themselves, reflect on their accomplishments over the past year, and enjoy the moment with their families and friends. The Celebrate Good Times Gala is a night filled with fun and elegance designed to celebrate our Guests.


Christmas Celebration with LARE Institute

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...and at the top of the Holiday Wish List of the LARE Institute Colleagues is the hope of continuing to bring Christmas joy and magic to the lives of the children of our own LARE Students…..our extended LARE Family! Our LARE students are working hard and doing their part by earning certifications and gaining employment to ensure that future Christmases will be bright for their families. While they are students, however, financial stressors can extinguish bright Holiday spirits. With a little Christmas magic, and lots of help from some amazing folks in the Merrimack Valley business community, American Training is transformed into a Winter Wonderland. Colleagues evolve into Santa, Mrs. Claus and Elves, beautifully wrapped presents appear, and the sound of children's joy and laughter fill the halls of American Training. We want to continue this wonderful tradition because each child’s LIFE MATTERS! What better way to spread good will during the Holiday Season than make a donation to the Annual LARE Institute Children’s Christmas Party. Your sponsorship will ensure that all our children will receive beautifully wrapped gifts, photo ops with Santa and Mrs. Claus, Christmas goodies and treats, and a family event that they will always remember. The priceless expressions of excitement and joy on the children’s faces are confirmation that, with your help, it is “the most wonderful time of the year!”


Colleague Recognition Awards

Our Colleagues work very hard to provide top-notch service to our Guests, Residents, and Students. We have this one night each year when we recognize our exceptionally passionate Colleagues for their hard work and dedication. At this WOW! Magic event, our Colleagues are treated to a wonderful evening focused on celebrating our American Training family. These Colleagues have given so much of themselves to improve the lives of those we serve to make life more meaningful. Special awards are given to those Colleagues who have gone above and beyond in their day-to-day work and to those who have dedicated years of service to American Training and LARE Institute.


Tie Dye Day & Carnivale

Each year our Guests and Students indulge in a day of sunshine, friends, delicious food and brilliant colors for our annual Tie Dye Day & Carnivale. The very first Tie Dye Day & Carnivale was held in the summer of 2002 when a small group of Guests and Finance Colleagues tie-dyed t-shirts in the parking lot. What was expected to be a fun activity turned into an epic annual event, as the Guests who participated that first year raved about the fun they had creating their colorful masterpieces. We now tie dye more than 500 t-shirts, serve tons of delicious cookout food, host a DJ and run several games each year. Each year the event grows bigger and better. Our Guests and Students love this event and talk about it for months after. Share with us in creating another WOW! for them


All Fund-A-WOW! sponsors will receive recognition for their donation at the event and on the website. Donations of $1,000 or more will also receive signage at the sponsored event, their company logo on the American Training website event listing, and an invitation to the sponsored event.
