Welcome

This is the official site of the Knoxville Neighborhood Treasure Hunt & Online Auction, representing a collaboration between Community Television of Knoxville, the Office of Neighborhoods, and participating Knoxville Neighborhood Organizations. The purpose of this effort is to promote neighbor engagement and raise money to fund neighborhood projects throughout the city.  One hundred percent of the proceeds from items sold during the auction will benefit the neighborhood organizations designated by each donor.

This initiative  begins with neighbors (local residents and merchants) looking around in their attics, basements, storage units and businesses for interesting“treasures” to donate.  Then, it’s just a matter of submitting the short online Neighbor Item Donation Form at THIS LINK.   Read one hypothetical example of how it works at THIS LINK.

In April, the  auction will feature 3 weeks of “live” online bidding.  Registered Treasure Hunters all over the city will browse and bid on all the donated treasures, conveniently sorted by categories.  The event will culminate with a live televised 3-hour special on CTV on Friday, May 3 (6 pm – 9 pm).
