LAS VEGAS, NV, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (NYSE and TSX: RBA), the world's largest industrial auctioneer, will sell more than 50 items generously donated by various members of the concrete industry at an upcoming unreserved fundraising auction, all proceeds to benefit Concrete Industry Management (CIM) programs. The auction takes place on Wednesday, February 6 at 1:00 p.m. in the north hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (N262), and is a part of the four-day World of Concrete event. On auction day, all items will be sold to the highest bidders—there are no minimum bids or reserve prices.

"All of the funds raised at this charity auction will greatly benefit the future leaders of the concrete industry," said Mike Johnston, Senior Vice President, Sales, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers. "World of Concrete and the CIM fundraising auction are great events that we and our customers look forward to every year.
