Bidding is now underway in the annual Mesa County Partners Television Auction.

The Partners auction will be broadcast LIVE on KJCT 8 Friday evening (September 8) from 7 pm until 10 pm.

However, for the second consecutive year, all bidding is taking place online. You can tune in to see what items are being sold and you can make a bid on the website.

Auction items include Denver Broncos tickets, overnight stays, getaways, fitness club memberships, ski passes, art, jewelry, musical instruments, gift certificates to local businesses and much more.

They have more than 300 items to bid on, and all the proceeds support Partners and their work with at-risk youth in Mesa County.

Some of the stuff will sell cheap, other stuff won't. Either way, keep in mind that your purchase is a donation to Partners and you are helping to make a difference in the community.
