(Durham, November 5, 2020) – This holiday season, give a gift with impact and check out what’s up for bid at the New Hampshire PBS Online Holiday Auction. This is a fun, hassle-free way to find gifts for everyone on your holiday gift list. Proceeds support NHPBS, and all bidding is done online at auction.nhpbs.org, allowing you to browse, bid and buy from anywhere. Bidding on hundreds of items, donated by local businesses and NHPBS supporters, starts on November 8th and runs through December 4th.
“Local businesses have been extremely charitable during these difficult times and we cannot thank them enough for their support,” says NHPBS Auction Manager Diane LaRochelle. “When you bid on an item through NHPBS Online Holiday Auction, it goes right back into the programs you love to watch on New Hampshire PBS.”
Viewers come to NHPBS to watch programs on travel, adventure and culture and the Online Holiday Auction gives bidders a chance to experience those things first hand. Items up for bid include a three-night rest and recreation package at the Omni Mount Washington Resort, two round trip tickets on Delta Airlines donated by Milne Travel and an old-fashioned railroading experience on the Conway Valley Train.
And that’s just the tip of the gift-giving iceberg! Imagine gifting a baby Taylor guitar signed by Taylor Swift herself or enhancing your train collection with the extensive list of Lionel O-Gauge trains that are up for bid! Other items include a Cub Cadet snow blower, a Troybilt riding mower, a Webber grill and a Ryobi portable generator all donated by The Home Depot Foundation or tee time for two at the Campbell’s Scottish Highlands Golf Course in Salem, NH.
For a full list of items visit auction.nhpbs.org.
