Radiothon to End Child Abuse seeks auction items

The Radiothon to End Child Abuse is currently accepting auction items for the 20th annual event, scheduled for Dec. 5 and 6.

The Radiothon is an annual fundraiser to support children and families in need. In addition to a pledge line, the Radiothon has an auction line where bids can be placed on a variety of items donated from the community. All monies raised from the auction remain in Crow Wing County to benefit those most at risk.

Any donated auction item with a retail value of $50 or more will be featured on the Radiothon auction website and a link to the business or organization website will be attached. Auction items and donors names will be broadcast continuously over the radio during the Radiothon. Each year the auction website has thousands of hits, which is a great way to provide advertising and awareness for a business or organization that donates to this good cause.

Those interested in providing an auction item for the Radiothon can contact Kris Ott at 218-824-1161 or

Deadline for auction item submission is Nov. 15.
