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 53rd 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.
Demonstrate your support for KLRN by sponsoring a Board or even an entire evening of the Auction. Sponsorship provides the opportunity to bring in volunteers on an evening of your choice to represent your brand and get in on the live Auction action. There are opportunities available for every budget. Opportunities go quickly. Contact us to reserve your spot.
KLRN’s biggest fundraiser takes place over eight days and requires many hours and the help of over 800 volunteers to make it successful. Join us behind the scenes in our studio to help make Blazing Gavels a success. Individuals and groups are welcome.
Items valued at $500 or more are presented online as well as live on-air during the auction. To bid online, you will need to register. If you bid by calling in, you will have to provide contact information each time you bid, unless you have a speed bid number.
If you have ever purchased an item from our Auction, you already have a speed bid number. A postcard with your number will be mailed to the address on record in May. If you are new to Auction, you will be able to request a speed bid number starting in May. With a speed bid number, you will be able to bid with just your speed bid number and telephone number.
