Ritchie Bros. Announces 2010 World of Concrete Charity Auction

Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers recently announced it will conduct the World of Concrete benefit auction in Las Vegas, on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2010, starting at 1 p.m. All proceeds support the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) post-secondary education program, developed by its National Steering Committee. Ritchie Bros. will waive its internet purchase fee for this benefit auction. Interested buyers can bid in person at World of Concrete or online at

The CIM benefit auction features a wide range of donated items, including equipment, cement and sports packages. Like every Ritchie Bros. auction, the CIM auction will be unreserved, which means there are no minimum bids or reserve prices. Every item will be sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price.

Last year’s CIM benefit auction attracted more than 200 bidders and raised approximately $300,000 for CIM program expansion.

In addition, Ritchie Bros. will sell hundreds of equipment items for the construction, transportation and other industries during a one-day unreserved public auction at its Las Vegas auction site on Friday, Feb. 5. For more information, visit
