Watch, Bid & Buy!

WTVP Announces its 35th ANNUAL televised AUCTION April 23-27!

Tuesday, March 31st, 2008



Five fabulous nights of entertainment—and countless opportunities to “watch, bid and buy”—will be featured during WTVP’s 35th annual fundraising auction, April 23-27 live on Channel 47.

The WTVP Auction gives viewing audiences the chance to bid on array of fabulous merchandise from the comfort of their own homes. All it takes is a telephone and a TV tuned to WTVP. All featured merchandise is donated to WTVP by local and national merchants, artists, and restaurants, so all proceeds go directly to support public television in Central Illinois. Bidding begins at just 50% of retail value so opportunities abound for great deals.

From big-ticket items to original paintings, from home furnishings to office supplies, from jewelry to concert tickets—this year’s WTVP Auction will have something for everyone.

Catch the Channel 47 Auction Action:

  • Wednesday, April 23 from 7-11 p.m.

  • Thursday, April 24 from 7-11 p.m.

  • Friday, April 25 from 7 p.m.-1 a.m.

  • Saturday, April 26 from 6 p.m.-midnight

  • Sunday, April 27 from 4-9 p.m.

And there’s still plenty of time to get involved! Donors and sponsors are always welcome. Volunteers are needed immediately as well as during Auction Week. Express Bid numbers and Auction shirts are all for sale.
