The 11th Annual Thornton Fund Auction

Members of the greater Saco community gathered at Thornton Academy on Saturday, May 5 for the school's 11th annual auction. Thornton Academy celebrated its longstanding relationships with area partners while raising funds to benefit Thornton Academy students. The 2018 auction was the most successful event to date, raising more than $125,000.

Thornton Academy's largest on-campus fundraising event featured a lively evening of cocktails from Dogfish Spirits, delicious h'ordeuvres and one-of-a-kind auction items. The silent and live auction items included exciting vacation getaways, sporting events tickets, a scooter, Eagles concert tickets with limo service, and much more. Over 250 items were donated by nearly 200 individuals and businesses, a testament to the commitment and enthusiasm of the community.

The true highlight of the evening was an exciting announcement about kicking off the public phase of our “For the Win” - Athletic Complex Capital Campaign. With a goal of $3 million, this campaign aims to renovate Linnell Gymnasium and build an addition of a much needed field house. Auction guests toasted champagne in celebration of the $2.1 million raised during the quiet phase and watched a virtual tour of the athletic complex plans.

A special thank you to all those who helped make Thornton Academy’s 11th annual auction a success. We are excited to celebrate our 12th annual auction on May 4, 2019.
