Winterbloom raises scholarship funds for Salisbury Academy

More than 400 people attended the Third Annual WinterBloom Gala, held Saturday, March 17 at the beautiful grounds of historic Boxwood Lodge, in Mocksville. The evening provided perfect weather, filled with anticipation of the spring bloom. The beautiful setting at Boxwood Lodge provided a perfect backdrop for the great food, fun, dance and fellowship.
Hosts Connie and Clay Lindsay, Missie and Greg Alcorn, Diane and Luke Fisher and Meg and Jay Dees welcomed guests for a gourmet cocktail buffet.
WinterBloom was designed to provide leadership opportunities to youth in our community. The proceeds from the evening benefit students at Salisbury Academy and provide scholarship opportunities for Rowan-Salisbury high school students.
This year’s recipients are Jasmine U. Cooper, Morgan E. Lamb and Marshall M. Shank from East Rowan High School; Kelsey B. Shelton from West Rowan High School; Jackie M. Batten, Caroline M. Billingsley, Veronica L. Leasure, and Bryant D. Madison from North Rowan High School; Eric T. Goldston and Lucas A. Kincaid from South Rowan High School; Sarah B. Barnhardt, Alyssa J. Hall, Olivia M. Horning, Erin H. Marohn, and Jordan K. VanVoorhis from J.C. Carson High School; and Javier G. Cruz, Jeryon M. Davis and Brittany N. Livengood from Salisbury High. All will have the opportunity to attend the Broyhill Leadership Conference this summer at Queens University of Charlotte.
In addition, Salisbury Academy and WinterBloom announced the support for Food for Thought Salisbury, Inc. with a $2,500 gift to its mission of supporting the nutritional needs of elementary school children in Rowan County.
Attendees had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items throughout the evening. The live auction was the highlight of the night, where items such as a trip to Italy and a dove-hunting trip to Argentina were auctioned to raise money for the community scholarship fund and the school. The live auction ended with a designer yorkie-poo puppy and a golden retriever puppy stealing the show.
With live and silent auction bids and many generous community donations, the event brought in over $330,000. The post-auction festivities continued with a bang of sparkling fireworks and the Black and Blue Band playing dance music until after midnight.
Presenting sponsors of this year’s event were Dottie and Tom Abramowski, Missie and Greg Alcorn, Shari and Bill Graham, Connie and Clay Lindsay, and Mona Lisa and Lee Wallace.
Diane Fisher serves as the Head of School for Salisbury Academy. More information can be found at HYPERLINK “http://www.salisburyacademy.org” www.salisburyacademy.org or by calling (704) 636-3002.
