WCNY's annual Travel Auction is kicking off Jan. 16 on WCNY-TV (Channel 24). Each night begins at 6:30 p.m. and the auction runs Jan. 16 to 18 and Jan. 23 to 24.
Currently in its 14th year, WCNY's Travel Auction partners with hotels, bed & breakfasts, spas, cruise lines and airlines from across the globe to provide bidders with exceptional vacation destinations. All proceeds benefit WCNY, Central New York's Public Broadcasting Service affiliate station.
In addition to a long list of "staycations," vacations in the Central New York area, available trips up for auction include such destinations as Canada, West Indies, Bahamas, Bermuda, Florida, New England, Egypt and many more. For a complete list of available vacations, visit wcny.org and follow the "TV Auctions" link to "Travel Auction '09 Inventory."
