WRNJ Radio Auction Benefits HRMC

HACKETTSTOWN (Feb. 13, 2006) - The 7th Annual WRNJ Radio Auction to benefit Hackettstown Regional Medical Center (HRMC) will once again offer outstanding auction items and packages featuring goods and services, donated by area businesses and organizations.

This hugely popular Radio Auction will be broadcast live on Oldies 1510 AM on Friday, March 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, March 4 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The pre-bidding portion of the 7th Annual WRNJ Radio Auction, hosted by Global Online Electronic Services (GOES), is expected to be brisk. The pre-event online portion of the Radio Auction will be accessible by visiting www.hrmcnj.org, www.oldies1510.com and www.goes.com from mid- February through 6 p.m. on March 1st.

Proceeds from this years event are designated for the Joan Knechel Cancer Center at Hackettstown Regional Medical Center, which opened in September of 2005.

"This years Radio Auction offers a wide array of terrific items for bid, said Lisa Dimiceli, Special Events Coordinator for HRMC. Our goal is to exceed last years profit of $20,000. With the outstanding items we have available and strong base of faithful bidders from our generous community, we feel we have a great chance to do that.

The Radio Auction offers items for everyone in the family. Among the Auction items donated so far include New York Yankee tickets, dinner for two packages, pro football memorabilia, overnight hotel packages, spa massages, fitness memberships, veterinary services, auto repair and maintenance service, golf, savings bonds and a variety of gift certificates to area retailers.

In addition to the pre-bidding portion of the Auction, a full auction list will be published on the hospitals website, www.hrmcnj.org, one week prior to the live Radio Auction.

The WRNJ Radio Auction is fun to listen to and truly is a winning prospect for everyone involved, said Dimiceli. The donating businesses and organizations get plenty of positive exposure on the radio and on the web; consumers get a chance to purchase great items and packages they might not normally have access to at these prices; and the Joan Knechel Cancer Center at HRMC receives the proceeds.

The HRMC Foundation thanks the nearly 100 businesses that have contributed items to the 7th Annual WRNJ Radio Auction thus far. Donations of products or services can still be made to the Auction by calling the HRMC Foundation office at (908) 850-6876.
