Representatives from the staff at Newcastle Realty presented a check for $1,450 to Lincoln Academy of Newcastle, Maine in support of their high school basketball program during a home game recently.

For over 15 years, Newcastle Realty has sponsored an exciting Half-Time Shoot Out program, a fun intermission fund-raising contest conducted at all home games in which a fan is chosen to attempt basketball shots from the free throw line, three-point line, and half court within 30 seconds. Cash winnings and prizes such as Newcastle Realty-branded T-shirts are handed out based on the successful shots.

Many of the Newcastle Realty staff are graduates of Lincoln Academy alumni, including owner and president Dennis Hilton, a member of the Class of ‘84. About a half-dozen other NR agents are also LA alumni.

Over the years, this program has generated over $16,000 in donations to Lincoln Academy and their Boosters Club from Newcastle Realty and sister companies Cheney Insurance and Newcastle Vacation Rentals. These related businesses form The Cheney Financial Group which through their charitable giving committee has contributed over $250,000 since 1990 to dozens of non-profit organizations in Lincoln County.
