DURHAM, NH (November 4, 2021) - This holiday season, give a gift with impact. The New Hampshire PBS Holiday Auction has gifts in stock for everyone on your holiday gift list. Proceeds support NHPBS, and all bidding is done online, allowing you to browse, bid and buy from anywhere. Bidding on hundreds of items, donated by local businesses and NHPBS supporters, starts on November 3rd and runs through December 3rd.
“We’ve received some unique items that would be perfect gifts to give this holiday season--from snow blowers to ski vacations and movie tickets to gift certificates to your favorite restaurants. The best part of the Holiday Auction is, we have the items in our warehouse,” says NHPBS Auction Manager Diane LaRochelle. “If you are a local artist or business who wants to be a part of the NHPBS Holiday Auction, we are still taking donations that will help us reach our goal.”
The NHPBS Holiday Auction is a fun, hassle-free way to find gifts for everyone on your holiday gift list, and every bid goes right back into the programs and services you count on from New Hampshire PBS. Lucky high bidders will enjoy a two-night stay for four at the Grand Summit Hotel at Attitash, hop aboard the Conway Valley Train or take in a show at the Palace Theatre in Manchester.
And that’s just the tip of the gift-giving iceberg! You can challenge your friends to an afternoon at the Portsmouth Escape Room, or you can bid on tubing tickets at McIntyre Ski Area in Manchester. Want to get out of the house? You can bid on lodging at Nootka Lodge in Woodsville, the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods or the Charles Hotel in Boston. Other items include certificates for fine dining at popular restaurants, spa treatments, theater tickets and hand-crafted gifts from local artisans! For a full list of items visit nhpbs.org/auction.
The sell dates for bidding are staggered over the course of six days: 11/15, 11/17, 11/19, 11/29, 12/1 and 12/3. Selling starts at 8pm each of those nights.
