The annual Partners TV Auction is being held tonight and bidding is taking place on line.

The annual fundraiser for Partners of Mesa County will be tonight (September 9) from 6:00PM-11:00PM and broadcast on KJCT Channel 8.

Throughout the evening, viewers will witness a fast-paced auction of everything from Denver Broncos tickets, ski passes, gift certificates to local businesses, and great getaways.

Unlike previous years, bids will not be taken over the phone. All bidding will take place on line at

Fast-paced certainly describes the Partners Auction because the bidding window for each item is only about 15 minutes and once that window closes, the items go to the highest bidder, That means every 15 minutes throughout the evening you are seeing 24 new and different items.

Some of your favorite Townsquare Media DJs will act as guest auctioneers from 8:30PM-11:00PM, which, is even more reason to tune-in. You can tune in to see Ed Chandler and me, from KOOL 107.9, Ray Michaels from 95 ROCK, and Tom Freeman from 99.9 KEKB.

Another change this year is that there will not be a live auction on Saturday as there has been in previous years.

Of course, this is a major fundraiser for Partners,which does such a great work in the community providing partners and mentors for troubled and disadvantaged youth. So, while there are certainly bargains to be had, the number one objective here is to lend a helping hand of financial support to one of our outstanding local non-profits.
