MOLINE, ILLINOIS – WQPT is launching an on-line auction beginning May 29 and concluding June 8.
The WQPT on-line auction can be accessed at www.wqpt.org. It features a variety of trips, restaurant gift certificates, services and PBS items.

“We have one-of-a-kind items like a ride in a vintage 1929 automobile and picnic, or a Chicago get-away,” said Special Project Coordinator, Bea Brasel.

On June 5 at 7:00 p.m. WQPT will air a preview program that will give potential bidders a sneak peek at many of the on-line auction items up for bid.

The auction is a fundraising event for WQPT. “The auction is a great way for people to find unique gift items and support WQPT, all at the same time,” said Chief Development Officer, Lora Adams, who also hosts the preview special.

Auction items include: a Lobster Feast for two with the Lobsters flown in from Maine; gift certificates for massages at the Institute of Therapeutic Massage and Wellness; summer session dance lessons from Illinois Ballet Theatre; Chicago White Sox Autographed photo and book; Rockford IceHogs Hockey tickets; trips to Maine, Chicago, Florida, St. Lucia, San Antonio and more.

WQPT has been the local public television station serving western Illinois and eastern Iowa since 1983
