LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 3, 2017) — The University of Kentucky's 91.3 WUKY public radio station is putting a new spin on fundraising. WUKY is partnering with Everything But The House (EBTH), an online estate auction service, to raise funds by auctioning items donated by WUKY listeners and friends. Proceeds from the online EBTH auction will benefit WUKY's general programming.
"EBTH brings the thrill of estate sale shopping online," said Gail Bennett, WUKY marketing director. "You have the opportunity to finish your spring cleaning, while knowing your donated items will go to support the programming and news you enjoy every day on WUKY."
Items valued over $150 can be donated, including rare collectibles, furniture, designer handbags, rugs, jewelry, coins, tools, antiques, cars and more. Items should be registered online at partners.ebth.com/wuky and can be dropped off at 1007 Primrose Court in Lexington the following days and times:
- Noon to 5 p.m. Friday, May 12
- 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 13
If items are too big for delivery or if you have questions, please email Todd Jones at Todd.Jones@EBTH.com.
An auction is planned in June. More information is available at www.wuky.org.
In 2007, Everything But The House grew out of the Cincinnati antiques market, where seasoned vintage sellers, Jacquie Denny and Brian Graves, joined forces to create an online full-service estate sale business. Entrepreneurs Andy and Jon Nielsen and Mike Reynolds approached the pair with a plan for how they could partner and make the company global. Today, EBTH.com sells furniture, jewelry, art, coins, cars, collectibles and more around the globe with over 400 sales a month.
