Welcome to the WTVP Auction Website!

WTVP’s annual televised auction is coming your way, live, April 27th - 30th, 2017 with treasures galore to “watch, bid, and buy.” From big-ticket items on our Big and Tonight Boards, to art and everything you need for home, office and life, Auction has something for you. And what’s more, all proceeds go to support WTVP and the programming you love and watch every day.

Get into the "auction mood" by watching the 2016 Auction behind the scenes recap video:

How to get involved

From donating to volunteering to bidding, there are many ways to part of the WTVP Auction.

Every item you see during the auction has been donated by generous businesses, organizations, area artists, and viewers like you. WTVP relies on donations to bring you a variety of items up for bid during our event.

Since Auction began in 1974 volunteers have been the driving force behind this annual fundraising event. Without our dedicated volunteers the auction would not happen, so become a volunteer and join the WTVP Auction family.

Watch from home and bid by phone! Support WTVP by tuning in to the Auction each evening to bid on the wonderful items you see. WTVP has various merchandise and certificates up for bid - from overnight stays to local dining establishments, from works of art to collectibles, and from toys to museum tickets. All proceeds from your winning bids support your local public television station.

Auction Schedule

When does the auction take place? Glad you asked! Here is the Auction schedule of events.
