Holiday Auction


THANK YOU for helping us raise money to help our friends and neighbors in the Tri-States!

97 Seven Country would like to THANK everyone who helped make the 2014 WGLR Holiday Auction a huge success!  We raised over $18,500 to help people in need right here in our Tri-State area.  That includes funding for The Grant County Sheriff Deputies Association’s: Shop with a Sheriff event, scheduled for Tuesday December 16th, 6pm at Shopko in Lancaster.  We couldn’t have done it without the volunteers, donors & businesses, including Tim Slack Auction & Realty (our auction host).  Anyone who purchased Holiday Auction items can pick them up and pay for them at the QueenB Radio Studios in Platteville during the hours of 8am til 4:30pm Monday thru Friday. For further information call WGLR at 349-2000, or 1-800-236-7671 . And thank you for helping to make the WGLR Holiday Auction a huge success once again this year.


The Grant County Sheriff Deputies Association is introducing their: ‘Shop with a Sheriff’ outreach.  Through Shop with a Sheriff, children in need are able to purchase gifts for Christmas, including one needed
item for themselves (such as coat, hat, clothing), as well as small gifts for other family members.  The Grant County Sheriff’s Office strives to make the day an engaging and exciting one, starting off by picking children up in one of our squad cars and taking them (along with a parent or guardian) to a local store to select items. We generally end the excursion with a meal and wrapping of gifts.  The deadline for applications is December 10, 2014. To Apply for Help from the ‘Shop with a Sheriff’ event, fill out the form below and mail it to:
