Generally Speaking...

Lights, camera...auction!  It’s that time of year again – time for our Holiday TeleAuction.  Our live, televised auction has been a viewer favorite for decades.  It’s a time of fun, fantastic deals, and fundraising for all the programs you love year-round on OPT.

And now we’re excited to announce that the TeleAuction is getting bigger and better.  In addition to this year’s televised auction – airing at 7pm on Saturday, November 18 – we’re adding an online auction to keep the fun going even longer.  The online auction will include an entirely different batch of great items to bid on, just in time for the holidays.  The online auction will run November 10-20, so check in early and often at www.optv.org/auction.

I want to thank you, in advance, for helping make our Holiday TeleAuction – and our new online auction – a huge success.  We are so appreciative of the folks who get involved with our special events and fundraisers, as they are one way we secure the necessary funding to purchase programs that benefit our entire community.  From children’s programs like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Curious George...to the epic documentaries of Ken Burns...to the reliable information on Nightly Business Report and PBS NewsHour...to the beautifully-filmed dramas on Masterpiece Theatre...everything you enjoy on OPT is a direct result of the support we receive from our community. 

Thanks, as always, for being a supporter of your public television station.  Your involvement makes such an important differ
