About the Auction

WQPT PBS revisited their original fund raiser—a televised auction event. This new event included an online auction, followed by a televised component. The auction featured a variety of donated items from gift baskets and ticket offers, to original artwork and stay-cations.

“Typically (in January) we hold our Champagne on the Rocks gala, but due to COVID19 we had to rethink and reimagine the event. We took a look at our history and decided to bring back The Auction is at Your House,” said interim General Manager, Dawn Schmitt. She went on to add,"over the station's many years, there have been televised auctions (featuring an Auction store at Southpark Mall in Moline). WQPT PBS was also an early adopter of online auctions, followed by Champagne on the Rocks gala event which featured live and silent auctions. Whether in person, on-air or online, our auctions have always been exciting for viewers and regional residents, while raising vital funds for our Educational Outreach inititatives and events."
