The TV, eh? Midseason Charity Auction closed yesterday with over $6,500 raised for Kids Help Phone. All proceeds will be donated to the free, confidential counselling service for youth, with winners paying shipping costs and TV, eh? covering auction and PayPal fees.
With over 70 prize packages up for bid, including TV memorabilia, autographed books, DVDs, magazine subscriptions, hockey and Olympic souvenirs, the top-earning packages were from Flashpoint, Murdoch Mysteries (including a walk-on role), Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays, Durham County and The Wire.
Didn’t win but want to contribute to the cause? Donate directly to Kids Help Phone and tell them TV, eh? sent you.
