Public Media Connect, ThinkTV and CET, is gearing up for our two biggest events – The Action Auction in Cincinnati and the GreatTVAuction in Dayton. These televised auctions are our biggest annual fundraisers and they help ensure that Public Media Connect can continue to provide broadcast, educational and arts services on air, online and in the community.
As Public Media Connect (ThinkTV/CET) heads into the second half of our March Membership Drive – our biggest membership drive of the year – we know everyone is torn on what to watch each evening and which organizations to support annually. We want you to know that Public Media Connect is working to make sure the money our members donate is spent wisely and in ways that positively impacts our communities.
Each March we host our largest and longest Membership Drive – From March 2 to March 17. During these two weeks, ThinkTV and CET pull together a plethora of special programs of everything from behind-the-scenes specials to flashback musical performances.
