SHPTV Signature Auction is This Weekend

SHPTV Signature AuctionAfter months of preparation, Smoky Hills Public Television is ready for its largest fundraiser. The Signature Auction is this weekend from 7 to 10 PM both Saturday and Sunday nights.

Brenda Meder from the Hays Arts Council and Linda Ganstrom from Fort Hays State University will host the two-night event. They will take viewers through the 102 pieces donated by artists from Russell County, around the state and beyond.
