WCTE’s annual Great TV Auction kicks off on Thursday, June 2 at 7:00 p.m.  The Auction airs live on WCTE from 7-11 p.m. June 2-5 and June 9-12.  2016 marks the 34th year of this beloved community event, which is also the largest fundraiser for WCTE Upper Cumberland PBS.  WCTE invites the Upper Cumberland to tune in for another season of auction excitement.

The Great TV Auction will feature over 1200 items from Upper Cumberland businesses, as well as national and international vacation packages.  WCTE will also feature the 4th annual online auction, in partnership with Tays Realty & Auction. This auction featuring online-only bidding will run from June 9-23.  Other highlights include Great TV Auction bidding parties at Spankie’s restaurant with WCTE President & CEO Becky Magura.  Each Thursday of the Auction from 7-9 p.m., Spankie’s will offer Auction specials and have the TV running so viewers can watch and bid from Spankie’s patio.  

“Auction 2016’s energy is up, and we are ready to go!  We cannot thank enough the businesses, volunteers and viewers who continue to support WCTE and make this fundraiser such a success!” said Amy Bachley, WCTE Special Events Coordinator.  The station is still accepting donations of items to be sold on-air during the Auction.  If your business would like to donate items or make a monetary donation, email auction@wcte.org or call 931-528-2222 ext. 304.  Interested volunteers may also call or email WCTE.
