Champagne on the Rocks

With class and a bit of champagne, WQPT holds its annual gala for the fifteenth year in a row. One of the largest and most elegant fundraisers in the area, the money raised goes to support the local PBS affiliate, whose missions include educational programming that includes programs such as First Book, Imagination Station and PBS Learning Media.

The night includes cocktails as well as dinner and a live auction that includes trips to Jamaica, wine tours, cooking classes, grand hotels, jewelry giveaways and so much more. Check out the auction listing before the event on Friday, January 29th.

The event takes place at the Outing Club in Davenport. Tickets are $100/person. Cocktail hour begins at 6 P.M., with dinner and the live auction at 7 P.M.

Spend the night supporting educational outreach, enjoying friends and basking in Downtown Abbey-like elegance. You can contact WQPT at 309-764-2400 or visit the site for more details.
