Volunteer for Antiques Roadshow this Summer!

Antiques Roadshow Austin 2014

Antiques Roadshow has announced its 2014 Summer Tour destinations and they’re making a stop at the Austin Convention Center on Saturday, June 28, 2014. To successfully run the appraisal event, Antiques Roadshow relies on local public television stations to help recruit volunteers from the local community. Volunteering for Antiques Roadshow is a great way to meet new people, have fun and participate in public television. Those individuals who volunteer can even have two items appraised!
