Fred Rogers

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say 'It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.' Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”

Fred Rogers, author, children's advocate, and children's programming pioneer

Friends of WSIU Fantasy Auction

Each year, the WSIU Friends Board hosts a fun-filled gala fundraiser in celebration of WSIU Public Broadcasting. Who knew this much fun could make such a difference?

Funds raised through the Auction strengthen our communities by:

  • Providing early childhood and school-based training and materials to parents and teachers

  • Funding locally responsive and relevant programming

  • Inspiring positive action in our communities

  • Connecting physically challenged residents to the world around them

  • Expanding programming and service options through digital upgrades


Be a Part of the Celebration!

The Fantasy Auction will be held Saturday, June 13, 2009, at the SIUC Student Center Ballrooms in Carbondale. The festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. and will conclude around 11:00 p.m.

You and your friends will enjoy cocktails, an elegant dinner buffet with regional wines, music, and of course, our extraordinary live and silent auctions.

Tickets are $60.00 per person, of which $20 may be considered a charitable contribution in support of WSIU Public Broadcasting. Advance reservations are required, and seating is limited. We hope you will help make this year’s event a success by planning to attend.
