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 2023


The BLIZZARD AUCTION has expanded to Defiance County for 2023! To make more of an impact, the BLIZZARD AUCTION will be donating proceeds to the United Way of Defiance County's Feeding Success program, in addition to the City of Bryan Parks & Recreation to help fund an all inclusive playground to be available for all children in NW Ohio.
