Anything is possible when WOOL-FM, an FCC-licensed community radio station serving the mid-river valley, will hold its third annual silent auction fund fest on Friday, November 19, from 5 to 8 pm, in the common room of 33 Bridge Street, right outside WOOL’s broadcast studio.
The event will be run in conjunction with the pre-holiday Third Friday Art Walk.
Offerings range from concert tickets and gourmet items to gift certificates and exquisite meals prepared by area chefs.
The sale includes many rare and collectable painting, etchings, signed graphic novels and other books, blown glass gift items, one-of-a-kind musical memorabilia, and so much more.
Many area individuals and businesses have donated goods and services to support the station. Funds raised will be used to purchase new equipment so that WOOL-FM can expand its broadcast range to more than 100,000 people throughout Windham, Windsor, Cheshire, and Sullivan counties. In September, the station was among very few recipients around the country awarded a full power educational broadcast license by the FCC.
Items will be posted on the radio station’s website, www.wool.fm, as they are donated, and the offering list will be updated on a regular basis. WOOL volunteers will continue to acquire goods and services for this auction right up to the day of the sale.
To donate to the silent auction contact Bob Ross at (802) 376-7166, Dorothy Read at (802) 463-9333 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
