Boy Scout Auction with Todd Blackinton


KPVI News Direc­tor and evening anchor Todd Black­in­ton will act as Mas­ter of Cer­e­monies for the Grand Teton Council’s 15th Annual Hol­i­day Auc­tion tonight at the Red Lion Hotel in Pocatello. The annual hol­i­day event is the Council’s largest fundraiser, sup­port­ing pro­grams serv­ing 20,000 youth in the region.

I was hon­ored to be asked,” said Black­in­ton. “I was a Boy Scout, and the lessons I learned in Scout­ing have served me well as an adult. And Scouting’s more rel­e­vant, and more needed, than ever. Integrity, char­ac­ter, lead­er­ship – that’s what young peo­ple learn in Scout­ing. I’m just happy to help, par­tic­u­larly with such a won­der­ful event.”

The Grand Teton Council’s Annual Hol­i­day Auc­tion has grown every year, both in atten­dance and in the num­ber and vari­ety of items offered for bid. The auc­tion this year will fea­ture live music dur­ing the din­ner and silent auc­tion phases of the evening.

Dur­ing the live auc­tion, atten­dees will have an oppor­tu­nity to bid on major items, includ­ing a Polaris 4-wheeler and dou­ble trailer, a Dis­ney­land vaca­tion pack­age, a Polaris snow­mo­bile, Jack­son Hole win­ter and sum­mer vaca­tion pack­ages, and a snow blower. In addi­tion, this year’s silent auc­tion will fea­ture more than 600 items.
