2019 PTO Auction

Norfeldt's 2019 PTO Auction was held on Saturday, March 23 from 6:30 - 10:30 PM at Tumble Brook Country Club.

Norfeldt's auction was a very special evening that is held only once every two years and is the PTO’s largest fundraising event! Our PTO is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and all proceeds benefit Norfeldt children.

Our goal for the 2019 auction was to raise at least $18,000.00 for essential tools our teachers and students need. Community support was critical to ensure a successful event to fund our school for the next two years. This event provides a unique opportunity for businesses and organizations to showcase their direct support of the Norfeldt community! There were also multiple sponsorship and advertising opportunities to further highlight support for our students and teachers.

In past auctions, the generosity of local businesses, organizations, and individuals resulted in wonderful features that all Norfeldt students now enjoy, such as a gaga pit; a projector and screen in our gym for school-wide events; an outdoor classroom area; Chromebooks; and many other critical resources that promote learning and growth in all areas of development in our students.

Our upcoming auction will help to fund essential resources for all students through 2021. Some of our more costly needs include:

  • A large number of new books that accommodate the many reading levels of all students, and books that include more diverse characters and storylines.
  • Our playground currently has some equipment that cannot be used due to safety concerns.  We need to remove and replace these structures so our children have more recess options, including options for children of all physical abilities. This work will likely occur in phases over more than one year.  

Beyond these areas, auction revenue will help ensure that our students and teachers have the essentials needed in their classrooms for the next two years.

To make a donation, please complete the 2019 Auction Donation Form and return it to: Norfeldt School, 36 Barksdale Road, West Hartford CT 06117 (Attn: Lindsay Hanrahan) or email it to NorfeldtAuction2019@gmail.com
