SOFi's NIGHT: 2016 Charity Auction

On behalf of the Board of Directors of The Soaring Owls Foundation:

Thank you to everyone who came together and made SOFi's NIGHT a success exceeding our expectations for the third year in a row. Stephanie Atkinson and Leslie Thrasher, our Chairs, led the way with literally hundreds of hours devoted to making the event possible. In addition, numerous others worked to secure sponsorships and donations that were combined into over 100 auction items.

Our guest list was not just limited to the Bolton Academy Community, as APS Superintendent Meria Carstarphen and School Board members Cynthia Briscoe Brown and Jason Esteves were in attendance. SOFi's 2014 Benefactor of the Year recipient, Steve Penley, also attended the event and brought two paintings along for auctioning! SOFi's 2015 Benefactor of the Year Award was presented to Matt Bond for his exemplary support of The Soaring Owls Foundation. Matt has been a steadfast supporter of all of our events over the last three years and we greatly appreciate his personal support and his efforts to bring more people into the Bolton Academy community.

Drum-roll please!

We are so very PROUD to announce that our community raised over $62,000 at the Auction and broke last year's record! This clearly affirms the School community's commitment to fundraising for Bolton Academy's supplemental programs and capital projects. THANK YOU to all who helped make the event such an enormous success! Saying "thank you" barely scratches the surface of the debt the Foundation owes to all of you who supported this and other Fundraising events. We are truly grateful for the Bolton Academy community's support.

Please join as we continue to celebrate!

A big thank you to our generous sponsors.
