ICUEE, J.J. Kane Auctions and Call of Duty Endowment (CODE) have partnered together to help connect military veterans with industry jobs. To support the cause, the groups will host a silent and live benefit auction.

One hundred percent of the ICUEE Benefit Auction proceeds will support the Call of Duty Endowment, a national organization that helps military veterans find high quality jobs by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and raising awareness of the value that veterans bring to the workplace.

CODE has funded the placement of over 34,000 veterans, with the goal of placing 50,000 veterans in jobs by 2019. Every $619 raised by the group helps a veteran get a good job.

Online bidding will begin on Sept. 5. The auction has no minimums and no reserves. All items will be sold. Auction items will include a hunting trip, hotel stays, equipment rental opportunities, advertising space, electronics, tools and more.

The live auction will be held at ICUEE on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 12 p.m.
