ICUEE 2017 Opens Online Bidding for The Demo Expo ‘Industry Give-Back’ Auction

Online bidding is now open for the ICUEE 2017 benefit auction, which will help connect military veterans with industry jobs.

ICUEE, The Demo Expo invites all utility and construction professionals to participate in the event: 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Call of Duty™ Endowment, the nonprofit organization founded by Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard.

The Endowment uses a performance-driven approach to fund organizations delivering the highest standards of quality and cost-efficient veteran job-placement services. It notes that every $619 raised helps a veteran obtain a good job. 

Visit J.J. Kane Auctioneers ICUEE auction site to view the auction items and place bids. At ICUEE 2017, the live auction takes place October 5 from 12 Noon to 2 pm on the show floor (indoor Demo Stage).

ICUEE 2017 runs October 3-5 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

Bid on a variety of items from drones to vacation packages to an array of tools and equipment and much more – new items will be added up until show time, so check back often. The auction will not have minimums or reserves (all items will be sold).

 “The Call of Duty Endowment does great work, and this benefit auction is one way we can help their mission and support those who have served our country,” said ICUEE Show Director Tricia Mallett. “And while we encourage all industry professionals to attend ICUEE, with the online bidding you can still join the industry in giving back even if you can’t be at the live event.”
