PTOs Preparing for Winter Festival Online Auction

Donations accepted through the end of the month.

Submitted release 

Parent Teacher Organizations at Cherry Brook Primary and Canton Intermediate schools are hard at work on their joint Annual Winter Festival Online Auction, which will take place on Feb. 13 to Feb. 27.

Last year’s event raised over $35,000 and the proceeds from this event went to help support students in Grades Pre-K through Sixth. Previous Winter Festivals have allowed for purchases of iPads, smart boards, document cameras, sound systems, science labs and other productivity tools to enhance the children’s learning experience.

This year the Cherry Brook PTO will direct their half towards their playground project.  The Cherry Brook PTO is planning on replacing both the larger and smaller aging wooden playground sets with more modern accessible sets creating an inclusive community playground.

Canton Intermediate School PTO plans to direct their half towards the purchase of additional technology, fund field trips and student enrichment programs.

They are seeking items and /or services that can be auctioned online.  Any donation, large or small, is greatly appreciated. For each donation, the donor business is listed so that online shoppers can see where all of the donations came from.  This is a wonderful advertising opportunity for businesses to gain exposure to all of our online shoppers.  If you are interested in donating, please contact Tracy Renaud at (860) 693-3720 or mail your donation to Tracy Renaud c/o Cherry Brook Primary School, 4 Barbourtown Road, Canton CT 06019. 

They are also offering limited ad space on their website for $100. The ads will be displayed on their online auction home page and will be seen each time a bidder comes to the site and will include a link to drive traffic to the website.  If you are interested in advertising, please contact Elizabeth Haynes at e.haynes@me.com  to discuss the details.
