November 1-7, 2022

On behalf of Maryland Public Television (MPT), the MPT Foundation, Inc. holds two annual auctions, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. These auctions raise needed funds to support the programming, broadcasting, and community outreach activities of MPT. Twice a year we are supported by dozens of Maryland-based creators, restaurants, and local businesses who donate merchandise or services for auction. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in MPT's 2022 Fall Auction!

Thank you PUMPKIN donors!

Black Walnut Point Inn

A secluded gem, this Maryland private island haven is one of the most unique spots on the Chesapeake Bay. The sun rises over the Choptank River and sets over the Chesapeake Bay, which makes wind, waves and endless water views the hallmark. The area is rich with native wildlife. The back cove is a spawning ground for rockfish and is home to sustainable oyster farming. At night the stars are uninterrupted, making lodging at Black Walnut Point Inn a quiet, secret place of peace.

Smith Island Inn

The Smith Island Inn offers both rooms and cottages on one of the most unique island getaways in the U.S.! Smith Island is a great place to relax, recharge, and embrace small-town culture and old-fashioned values. Every visitor has different likes and dislikes. For some, they arrive with great expectations, while others arrive with no definitive plans and are happy to relax and laze at the Inn, pick up a book, or relax in the newly screened gazebo. 

The Liberty Trust

The Liberty Trust is centrally located in the heart of Downtown Roanoke, at the corner of South Jefferson Street and Salem Avenue SW. Boasting 54 luxurious guest rooms designed with custom-made furnishings, top-quality detailing and finishes, and upscale amenities, the hotel’s design is significantly inspired by its original standing as the former historic First National Bank headquarters that was constructed in the early 20th century.
