KLRN TV's Blazing Gavels
September 14-21, 2020
The Blazing Gavels Auction is the largest and most ambitious live, televised auction staged annually in San Antonio.
COVID-19 prevented an in-person auction to happen in 2020. However, we were successful with an online auction that happened later in the year. As we look ahead, no official plans are in place for our next auction but we will post any announcements here once they are available.
Thank you for your support of KLRN in the South Central Texas community.
During the event, hundreds of businesses from across the country donate goods and services to be auctioned off in support of public television. KLRN’s biggest fundraiser takes place over eight days and requires many hours and the help of many people to make it successful. The event brings viewers from various communities together in an effort to promote and sustain public television. In addition to fundraising, the purpose of the Blazing Gavels Auction is to connect individuals who value quality programming with each other and form a community of lifelong learners.
