KMSU Auction Follow Up

Posted: Updated:

$16-thousand dollars was raised for the students - by the students.

Minot State University Broadcasting Department hosted the 15th Annual KMSU Auction this week.

$80,000 worth of donated items were organized in more than 60 packages for bidding.

The students handled every part of the auction from collecting donations, to promotion, to camera and on-air work in the six-hour, live-broadcast event.

Ten percent of the proceeds was donated to Mike Bunce, a department instructor battling cancer.

An additional ten percent is set aside for broadcast department scholarships and the remaining money raised is used to update the technology-heavy department.

Aundrey Livingston says the auction is hands-on experience and community involvement at its best.

(Aundrey Livingston, KMSU Auction) "You take so much more from the KMSU Auction than just an event. It's life and it's for a good cause, and it's bettering yourself." >>

The $16,000 raised this year set a new record for the department.
