Online bidding is now open for the ICUEE 2015 benefit auction, which will help connect military veterans with industry jobs. The auction will be held on October 1 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. on the show floor. Bids can be placed on the J.J. Kane Auctioneers website at https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=99710.
Auction items donated by ICUEE 2015 exhibitors include:
- Trips: American Country Music’s Party for a Cause in Las Vegas, NASCAR package, and a Caribbean cruise
- Specialty items: Drone and a guitar signed by country singer Kip Moore
- Equipment: Horizontal loading device, Armor tooling system and a fluid pressure transmitter
The auction has no minimums/no reserves (all items will be sold), and 100% of the proceeds will go to The Call of Duty Endowment. This national organization helps military veterans find high-quality jobs, including in the construction/utility industry.
“The auction is for a great cause and ICUEE exhibitors were really excited to get involved,” said Show Director Sara Truesdale Mooney. “The utility industry really has a ‘giving back’ spirit and online bidding is another way to involve more industry professionals and start the countdown to the show.”
ICUEE, the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition, is also known as The Demo Expo and is owned and produced by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). It will be held September 29-October 1 in Louisville, KY (Kentucky Exposition Center). Visit www.icuee.com for the latest show information.
