2015 CVA Scholarship Fundraiser
Saturday, February 20, 2016
Sugarloaf Inn - Shipyard Brewhaus
The annual CVA Scholarship Fundraiser - Big Raffle, Live and Silent Action is held in February the second Saturday following President’s Day. CVA supporters turn out to bid on live and silent auction items, socialize with friends and most of all, observe the drawing of the Big Raffle, a one in approximately 500 chances to win $10,000.
The first raffle began back in 1981, with the donation of a car. The idea was implemented by the dedicated leadership of Bruce Miles, Lloyd Cuttler and Tom Hildreth as part of the Sugarloaf Regional Ski Educational Foundation (SRSEF). Over thirty years later a few things have changed yet the fund raising efforts remain constant. The CVA Development Team and the Parent Support Organization (PSO) team up to organize The Big Raffle and Silent Auction by forming committees with a goal of raising monies to support CVA’s Scholarship Fund. Dedicated PSO volunteers, along with live and silent auction donations from local and afar businesses, individuals, and CVA parents make the event a huge success. The Big Raffle and Silent Auction raises more than $90,000 for the general scholarship fund and is an entertaining, energizing and rewarding way to meet and support the CVA and Sugarloaf community.
Please consider buying a raffle ticket or donating/bidding on one of our auction items -- every dollar we raise provides critical funding for the 50% of our students who rely on scholarship support to attend CVA and follow their dream.
