2021 CVA Scholarship Bash Live Stream Event

CVA's annual Scholarship Bash is a critical piece of the Academy’s fundraising efforts to raise scholarship money for current and prospective student-athletes. Each year, Carrabassett Valley Academy awards scholarship funds to over 55% of our student-athlete population who demonstrate financial need and exceptional potential in their athletic discipline and academic performance.

Traditionally held at the Bill and Joan Alfond Competition Center, this year’s event will be held live online at 6pm. The online event will include a raffle drawing for a $10,000 cash prize winner as well as a paddle raise cash giving opportunity. 

Buy a raffle ticket

To purchase a raffle ticket, go online to Tickets can also be purchased at various local businesses including: The Bag, Ayotte’s, The Antigravity Complex, Mountainside Real Estate, and at Carrabassett Valley Academy. Ticket holders need not be present at the event to win. Only 500 raffle tickets will be sold.  


An online auction of special “priceless” items will begin at the conclusion of to the virtual event including a ski locker in the Alfond Competition Center and events and experiences that can’t be purchased anywhere else. More items will be offered at a follow-up online auction in the spring. There will be plenty of big-ticket items to bid on. Win equipment, tickets, getaways to the rivers, mountains and coastline of Maine, and other unique experiences.

How you can help

You can help support student-athletes by becoming a sponsor, donating an auction item, purchasing a raffle ticket, bidding in the online auction, or raising your paddle for a cash donation during the online event. 

History of the event

The first raffle began back in 1981, with the donation of a car.  The idea was implemented by the dedicated leadership of Bruce Miles, Lloyd Cuttler and Tom Hildreth as part of the Sugarloaf Regional Ski Educational Foundation (SRSEF).  Over thirty years later a few things have changed yet the fundraising efforts remain constant.
