For the 15th year, the students at Minot State will be hosting the KMSU Auction.
Janna Mckechnie's class is here preparing for the live television auction coming up this Thursday.
Items donated from local businesses are packaged together.
Those packages range in price from a couple hundred dollars to over 18-hundred.
In years past, students have raised as much as 20-thousand dollars in one auction.
McKechnie believes the auction which is produced, advertised and performed solely by MSU students - is a way to apply their studies of broadcast production, public relations, and advertising.
(Janna Mckechnie, Donations Coordinator, KMSU Auction) "This is probably the best hands on class that they will get at Minot State University. It gives them every aspect of an event. So it gives them the planning stages, getting things set up. Making the contacts putting the different packages together, they are in charge of every aspect of this. So it's a tremendous learning tool for them."
Thursday's auction starts at 6:30 P-M on MidContinent Channel 19.
Portions of this years proceeds will go to Mike Bunce, a professor in the broadcasting department currently battling cancer.
