Salisbury Academy hosting Bloom Gala April 16

Salisbury Academy’s Bloom “Enchanted” Gala will be held April 16 at the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer. Attendees will enjoy cocktails, dinner and dancing, and will have the opportunity to bid on items during the live auction.

After-auction festivities will continue with live music and dancing to the tunes of The Shakedown Band. Festivities start at 7 p.m.

This year, the annual Fund-A-Need campaign will raise money to support Project Green Space. Bloom was designed to support Salisbury Academy and the youth of our community. A portion of the funds raised go to a scholarship program for summer youth leadership training opportunities and toward Salisbury Academy’s active community service outreach initiatives.

Auction prizes include a mountain getaway off the Blue Ridge Parkway between Boone and Blowing Rock. Stay in a beautiful three-bedroom, three-bath cabin, enjoy a $100 certificate to Bistro Roca in downtown Blowing Rock with a private driver to take you safely to dinner and back and take a day on the river with fishing expert and Orvis Regional Manager TJ Roy. This package was donated by Alice and Ryan Rich and is valued at $2,400.

Also up for auction is a champagne reception followed by a french-inspired gourmet meal, hosted at the home of Greg and Kristin Shields in Salisbury. All courses will include wine pairings from the greatest wine-making regions in France. The meal will be personally prepared by Frederick Corriher. This package is available to seven couples and was donated by Frederick Corriher, Fred Corriher, Greg and Kristin Shields, and is valued at $7,000.

Tickets are $150 per person. Visit www.salisburyacademy.org/bloom.cfm for more information.
