ABINGDON, Va. – Cornerstone Christian Academy (CCA) is welcoming the 2022 spring season by hosting its 11th annual Spring Fling and Auction, giving the Abingdon-based private school an opportunity to raise proceeds in support of its Scholarship Fund.
This year’s event, “The Chronicles of Narnia: Into the Wardrobe,” is scheduled for Friday, March 18, from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon. Featuring a catered meal, live auction, and jazz/big band music by The Diamonds, the event will give attendees the ability to bid on a range of auction items, including gift baskets and vacation getaways.
Previous auctions have raised up to nearly $50,000 for CCA.
