Welcome to the 2018 GreatTVAuction!
Celebrating our 42nd year, the GreatTVAuction is proud to bring our community another year of bidding, buying and supporting your public television station. The auction airs LIVE on ThinkTV16 & 14 April 16-21. You have the opportunity to begin bidding on Major Gift Items (items valued at $350 or more) now, thanks to our partners at Dayton Daily News. Bidding online is easy- simply click here to register, or, if you have bid online with us in the past, click here to log-in!
There are multiple options for viewing items up for bid online during the GreatTVAuction. The first option is by boards. Tonight Board items range in value from $350-$749, Big Board items range in value from $750-$1,999 and Super Board items are valued at $2,000 or more. You also have the option to view the items by Category, separated by item type rather than item value.
Once the Auction goes live on ThinkTV (April 16th at 6:00 PM) tune in and watch your bids simultaneously. When you place an online bid, the volunteers will post your bid on the electronic boards in the studios. You can watch ThinkTV16 & 14 for updates on the items and continue to place bids either online or by phone. The high bidder will receive a confirmation call within an hour of the item closing.
Items up for bid on the GreatTVAuction will be picked up at our studios located in Downtown Dayton during designated Pick-Up & Pay hours. These hours are Wednesday through Saturday April 18 - 21, from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM. and Sunday, April 22 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
