The WTVP 46th Annual Live Auction has come to a close. Thank you for supporting your public media station, WTVP, Public Media for Central Illinois. Join us April 23rd - 26th, 2020 for the 47th Anuual WTVP Auction!
What is the Online Auction?

In 2006 WTVP started an online auction as part of our Auction activities. WTVP solicits merchandise, places it on the web, and showcases that merchandise for 26 days along with donor information and a concise description of the item.

The online auction is completely separate from the live televised auction, but you might see some of the same items on both. Be sure to check the online auction frequently as we plan to add additional items throughout the auction period.

We will also feature the "Big" / "Tonight Board" items on the online auction, but these items will only be available for on-air bidding. You must watch the "Live" auction each night in order to place a bid on these items.

This year, WTVP is hosting two online auctions:

  • 1st Online Auction: April 1st - April 26th, 2020
  • 2nd Online Auction: May 11th - 29th, 2020
How do I pay for my Online Auction item?

This year there is a change to the On-Line Auction. We will use a different process for paying for your items if you are the highest bidder. The credit card that you registered with for the On-Line Auction through BiddingForGood is the card that will be charged if you are the highest bidder. You will not have to pay for your on-line items at “Pick Up ‘N Pay”.

As usual, if you the highest on-line bidder and are out of town or would like your merchandise/certificate mailed, WTVP will mail your merchandise for a nominal shipping charge or $2.00 charge for certificates.

Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express
Overbid Incentive is also available for the Online Auction!

Landmark Cafe & Creperie logoGood news! Our overbid incentive from the Landmark Café & Creperie in Galesburg is good for our online auction as well as our on-air auction!

The Landmark Café & Creperie in Galesburg wants you to overbid the retail price of each auction item! As an incentive, they are going to match every dollar you overbid--up to fifty dollars--with gift certificates towards your next dine-in meal... that's one delicious deal! Certificates will be issued in amounts no greater than twenty-five dollars, can only be redeemed one at a time, and expire in December of this year. The Landmark Café on Seminary Street in Galesburg -- delicious food, great atmosphere and proud to support WTVP.
