It’s Auction Time!

I finished taping for this semester on April 15th, and now it’s time to get serious about the 35th annual KENW online Auction.  Our station conducts an auction each year to raise money to pay for programming for viewers in Eastern New Mexico and West Texas.

Now that the auction is online, people from all over the world can “surf, bid and buy” and support public television.

The web address is:  http://auction.kenw.org You can browse as long as you like, but when you get ready to bid (and that’s the fun part of any auction), you need to click on the “Register” button at the top of the page.  You’ll enter your name, address and telephone number(s).  Your username will be e-mailed to you and you can choose your own password.

Don’t worry – if you forget either the username or password, you can e-mail me at:  sheryl.borden@enmu.edu and I’ll be glad to look it up for you.

Even though the auction doesn’t officially begin until June 1st, we already have over 150 bids.  You can place a reserve bid, and the computer will do your bidding for you — just like ebay and other online auctions.  That keeps you from having to check back so often — although I encourage you to at least check once a day because I add items every day.

The auction ends at 8:00 pm (MST) on Thursday, June 10th.  If you are the high bidder, you will be e-mailed an invoice and you can either:

  • Mail a check or money order to the Broadcast Center and the item(s) will be mailed or shipped (UPS) to you
  • Come by the Broadcast Center in Portales, NM and pay and pick up your items and avoid any shipping charges
  • Put your items on a credit card — which you must e-mail or call us with the number and the expiration date — and we’ll mail or ship the items to you

Only merchandise has a tax applied — which is 5%.  None of the gift certificates have tax.  There are a few items which are too large to ship and you do have to pick them up at the Broadcast Center or at the store.

Every year the auction grows, and it’s so much fun!  Besides being fun, remember all the proceeds go to pay for quality programming for KENW-TV.
