Hackettstown, N.J. – The Office of Alumni Relations at Centenary College will host a “Value This Radio Roadshow” event at 4 p.m. October 12, 2013, in the David and Carol Lackland Center.  The event is part of the College’s Family & Alumni Weekend.  It is free and open to the public. 

Television and radio show antique appraisers Brian Kathenes and Leon Castner, co-hosts of Public Radio’s “Value This! With Brian and Leon,” which airs on WNTI, and the expert appraisers on the Reelz Channel’s hot new reality show “FanAddicts!” will share their antiques and collectibles knowledge at this public event.  Kathenes is also an on-air appraiser for Discovery Channel’s TV show: “POP NATION  - America’s Coolest Stuff.”  Castner has appeared on ABC’s “20/20.”

The public is invited to attend this live, radio-show-style event and to bring along one item and yours may be picked for evaluation. 

“Bring along your one item and we might select it to share with the audience and determine what it is and what it is worth,” says Kathenes.

“It will be an exciting day,” adds Castner.  “Centenary College really knows how to put on an event.  There will be free refreshments and lots of surprises.”

Items that members of the public can bring to be discussed in the session include coins, stamps, sports memorabilia, antiques, residential contents and rare books. 

“This is a fun and exciting opportunity for our campus and alumni, and we are thrilled to invite the community to join us,” says Deana Cynar, Director of Alumni Relations at Centenary College.  “We are looking forward to seeing the items you bring in, and maybe we’ll even find a hidden treasure.” 

Family & Alumni Weekend is designed for families of current students and graduates to return to their alma mater and reconnect with fellow classmates as well as see the changes and advancements that have taken place at Centenary College throughout recent years.
