KSKC Public TV Fund Drive begins December 11

PABLO — KSKC-Public TV celebrates its 26th year with their on-air fundraiser scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, December 11 and 12, beginning at 6:00 p.m. each evening. The annual KSKC Live Auction continues to grow! Viewers can call in bids and people are welcome to come to the campus at SKC in Pablo to participate in-person. The auction will be held in the SKC Three Wolves Deli, right next to the D’Arcy McNickle Library. Coffee, tea, cookies and Mission Mountain Mist will be free.

Participants are encouraged to arrive around 5:30 p.m. to get a good seat and enjoy the auction. Special call-in numbers will be available during the fund drive for those staying home. All items have been donated so all proceeds will go to the local public television station. Many great items are on the agenda this year, including lots of beadwork, various types artwork, and other exciting items including; a Corky Clairmont original art piece created during the auction; a year’s worth of homemade Denise Fyant cookies; Linda King's beadwork; loads of crushed gravel from the SKC Highway Construction program and Treasure State Concrete; many original artpieces and prints; and hundreds of other items! Viewers are encouraged to check the SKC website for last minute listings of items. From the homepage, look for the KSKC Public TV link.

The annual drive funds operation and maintenance of the only local public TV entity in the valley. As well as the on-air fund drive, this is the time of year that KSKC-TV also solicits underwriting from local business. The local business contributions are a very important part of the community support and KSKC is grateful for the interest and support that businesses have shown for public television. Viewer contributions, underwriting, and contributions by Salish Kootenai College and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes support KSKC-TV. They receive no federal, state or local tax support for ongoing operation.

Individuals and business's wishing to donate to the auction or learn about public television underwriting can call Roy Bigcrane at 275-4879.
