Over $15,000 Raised at Cornerspring’s Annual Tuition Assistance Fundraising Auction

May 27th, 2015

Cornerspring Montessori School would like to thank everyone who attended our recent annual auction in support of our Tuition Assistance Fund. Our scholarship fund insures that an economically diverse community of students exists at Cornerspring. Our Auction Committee planned a wonderful and entertaining evening which began with a delicious Italian meal prepared by Beth Whitten and John Poto, salads by Anne Hallee of Rising up Farms and desserts by Let them Eat Cake and Sweet Henry’s.  The bar featured beers from both Marshall Wharf Brewing Co. and Monhegan Brewing Company, as well as a selection of wines from Vinolio.  Several Cornerspring alumni and students took on the role of Italian waiters and efficiently served the dinner to more than 80 appreciative guests.  Eric Sanders entertained the crowd as he auctioned off over 25 live auction items donated by local businesses, families, staff and Cornerspring classrooms.  The event was a great success and raised over $15,000 to help provide support for families to attend Cornerspring’s preschool, kindergarten, elementary and summer camp programs.

We would also like to thank and acknowledge our sponsors who made this wonderful event possible: G O Logic LLC, Patina, Belfast Pediatrics, Vinolio, Tucker Law Group, Ecocor, Belmont Boatworks, Little River Veterinary Hospital, MTA Accounting and Alicia J. Nichols, Fundraising Counsel.  We truly appreciate your support of Cornerspring and our assistance fund.
