The Nine Auction―Back in Business!
The Popular Fundraising Auction Returns Online With 150-PlusUnique Items and SpecialExperiences
St. Louis, MO—May 19, 2011—From a baseball autographed by Sandy Koufax to the opportunity to serve as ringmaster at Circus Flora, the Nine Online Auction offers shoppers a unique inventory featuring many one-of-a-kind items and experiences. It’s all up for bid—or if you can’t stand the suspense, it’s possible to bypass the bidding process on some items and purchase them outright.
The Nine Online Auction kicked off earlier this week and will continue around the clock through Memorial Day. Like the old Channel 9 TV Auction, the new Nine Online Auction gives shoppers the chance to bid on one-of-a–kind experiences, like a weekend at a private lake house, or gift cards at specialty shops and restaurants. By moving the auction online, more of the fundraiser’s proceeds go toward programming and less toward covering the expenses of a televised auction.
Throughout the span of the auction, new items are being added. It’s easy to bid and buy online. Find the auction at www.nineNet.org/auction or follow the links on the flier below.
