HISTORY OF THE BLIZZARD AUCTION
The BLIZZARD AUCTION was born in the aftermath of the great blizzard of 1978 in Bryan, Ohio. WBNO/WQCT wanted to commemorate that event by doing an on-air radio auction that raised money for local organizations. The first auction was held in 1979 and the proceeds helped to rebuild the grandstand at the Williams County Fairgrounds. Over the years, the auction has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for organizations helping the community.
WHO BENEFITS FROM THE BLIZZARD AUCTION IN 2024
The BLIZZARD AUCTION has expanded to Defiance County for 2024! To make more of an impact, the BLIZZARD AUCTION will be donating proceeds to the United Way of Defiance County and United Way of Williams County's Dolly Parton Imagination Library Programs.
