The annual KENW-TV auction will be extended through Saturday, according to Sheryl Borden, KENW-TV director of marketing.
The online auction was scheduled to end Monday, but was extended because there were 92 items remaining, Borden said.
Through Monday, the auction raised $36,000. The goal for this year’s auction is $55,000, Borden said.
Last year, the auction raised $46,000.
People can begin to bid on the items today, Borden said. The auction ends at 9 p.m. Saturday.
“We are hoping that the bids on the remaining items will bring us closer to our goal,” Borden said.
The station’s biggest fundraiser is used toward the KENW-TV programing budget for the next fiscal year, Borden said.
KENW-TV is a Public Broadcasting Service station based at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales.
It was the second year that the auction was conducted online.
