Online WKNO Action Auction Launching
On Thursday, May 9 at 9:00 p.m., WKNO-TV will present a half-hour preview show featuring some of the items that will be up for bids at www.wkno.org for the WKNO Action Auction. The online-only auction, featuring more than 200 items, will run May 9-21, and all proceeds will benefit WKNO, public broadcasting for the Mid-South.
It’s a great way to support some of your favorite programs on WKNO/Channel 10, like The Family Plot: Gardening in the Mid-South, Antiques Roadshow, Behind the Headlines, This Old House, Downton Abbey, and Sports Files with Greg Gaston.
The preview television broadcast on May 9 will be hosted by radio personality Tom Prestigiacomo and will feature fitness certificates, scuba lessons, spa and salon services, pet services, gorgeous jewelry, music and dance lessons, restaurant certificates, and much more. We also have some fabulous getaways like an eight-day Rhine Getaway Viking cruise for two from Amsterdam to Basel, and trips to the Caribbean – Antigua and Barbados.
Bidders who are unable to bid online can receive help from auction team members by phone at 901-452-3344.
WKNO is a non-profit, private foundation serving the Mid-South for more than 57 years.
