As you may know, Blazing Gavels depends heavily upon the efforts of hundreds of volunteers. Because large gatherings are currently unadvisable and so many in our community are feeling the strain of current restrictions, we decided to postpone the Auction. We will notify everyone as soon as new dates have been determined. 

We are still accepting donations at this time. If you have not donated, but still wish to contribute, please email and the Auction Department will contact you once we have resumed operations. 

If you have already donated, you may direct any questions or concerns regarding your participation to

The success of Blazing Gavels and our ability to provide relevant and trustworthy programs and information to the 33 counties we serve is greatly dependent upon donors such as you. Thank you so much for your support of KLRN. 

With warm regards,
Auction Department
