Scholarship Bash

Mark your calendar! February 26, 2022

Support the current generation of student-athletes through our annual Scholarship Event, which happens every February and is now our only fundraising event.
Proceeds go directly to the scholarship fund which helps roughly half of our student-athletes attend CVA through financial aid. Funds are raised through the sale of raffle tickets, auction, and our generous event sponsors.

2021 CVA Scholarship Bash: Thank you for your support

A record-breaking show of support was demonstrated at Carrabassett Valley Academy’s annual Scholarship Bash held Saturday, February 20th.

The event, held for the first time virtually, brought the community together in a tremendous show of support, contributing over $180,000 to assist CVA student-athletes with scholarship funds.

CVA’s Head of School Kate Webber Punderson says the support for this event, in its new format, was amazing. “From those who signed on as sponsors, bought raffle tickets, donated cash during the live stream event, volunteered on the event committee, donated door prizes and auction items, bid on items or simply watched the event online, we hope every person involved takes great pride in knowing what a tremendous difference your support has made. Over half of CVA student-athletes receive financial assistance. Truly, our students would not have the CVA opportunity without all of you.”

Professional auctioneer Carrie Ervin '02, a CVA alumna and Sugarloafer originally from Waterville now living and working at Christie’s New York, did a masterful job of getting the crowd to donate generously during the cash call.

Congratulations to Fred Wetmore from Madawaska, Maine, grandfather of Dev Thomas ‘16 and Lulu Cushman ’26, the lucky winner of the $10,000 cash prize.
