KLRN TV's Blazing Gavels
September 14-21, 2020
Dear Friends of KLRN,
After much consideration, we have decided not to host Blazing Gavels in 2021.
2020 was a challenging year for so many of us – especially the many businesses and donors who support KLRN by contributing items to auction. Although we will miss the energy and excitement of Blazing Gavels, we will continue focusing efforts on serving the needs of our community members to the best of our ability.
We thank you tremendously for your past support, which has allowed us to continue to provide enriching programs on-air, online and in our community.
If you would like to support KLRN, here are other ways you can give:
Again, thank you for all you’ve done to ensure that KLRN can remain a vital community resource.
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.
Blazing Gavels is the most ambitious live televised Auction staged annually in San Antonio. KLRN’s biggest fundraiser takes place over 8 days and is broadcast from the KLRN studio.
Hundreds of businesses across the country donate goods and services to be auctioned off in support of public television. Now in its 54th year, Blazing Gavels receives more than 3,000 items from hundreds of donors. Items are presented by guest auctioneers including local celebrities, civic leaders and representatives from local area businesses.
Viewers bid on a variety of items and gift certificates including travel, dining, jewelry, health & beauty, home décor & furnishings, art, entertainment, automotive, pet & business services, sports memorabilia and more!
Auction Associates are ready, willing, and able to take your donations. Donating not only demonstrates your support of public television, it can be a valuable marketing vehicle to expose your business to potential new customers throughout South Central Texas. We welcome donations from individuals and businesses alike. Nothing is too big or small.
