Donate to the Big Alaska Travel Auction


Dear Fellow Visit Anchorage Member and Supporter of Public Broadcasting,

It is that time again – for the 2015 Travel Auction with KAKM Channel 7 and Alaska Public Media TV on April 30 and May 1!  As a longstanding supporter of KAKM Channel 7 and this auction, thank you so much for your continued support of public broadcasting in Alaska!

We are again partnering with Visit Anchorage to bring Alaska’s finest travel and hospitality opportunities to a large audience of viewers in Anchorage and Southcentral Alaska on KAKM-TV, in Bethel on KYUK-TV and KTOO-TV in Juneau.

Tourism benefits businesses of all types, strengthens the economy and by working together, we can make our community better.  This is a unique opportunity to celebrate the beginning of National Tourism Week while reaching viewers around the state and getting them thinking about what they can do with their VFRs (Visiting Friends and Relatives) for the year to come – or in getting their homes spruced up and ready for those VFRs!    Here are the details:

  • 2015 Travel Auction: Thursday, April 30 through Friday, May 1 – 7:00 to 10 p.m.
  • Deadline for Submissions: Friday, April 17 at 5 p.m.
  • What we are looking for:  Travel-related items such as trips, accommodations, activities and adventures, shopping certificates or home-related items
  • Other things to include: logos, pictures and video whenever possible for broadcast during the live auction when your donation is presented and auctioned off.  Images should be as high resolution as possible.

For your donation, your business will receive:

  • On-air individual presentation on one of three nights
  • Online listing and link to your company website
  • Catalog inclusion with your donation, the name of the individual or business donor, and value

 Donations valued at $1,000 or more will also receive:

  • Detailed information and inclusion highlighting your donation in the member e-blasts that go to more than 8,000 members of Alaska Public Media
