It's a two-for-one auction:
Buy a customized truck and fight human trafficking at the same time!
Register to bid beginning April 21; TAT will receive all auction proceeds!
Looking to own a brand-new truck, a vehicle that will turn heads when you drive by? Registration will be open and the sale page will be active on April 21, 2017 on RBAuction.com. Join the online bidding June 20 for a fully loaded, customized 2018 Kenworth T680. All auction proceeds will go directly to Truckers Against Trafficking to help educate and spread awareness about the crime of human trafficking and what people can do to fight it.
In a unique and creative fundraising event, Inland Kenworth and Ritchie Brothers Auctioneers are teaming up with Truckers Against Trafficking to raise funds for TAT by auctioning off the truck on June 20. You do not have to be present to win.
Additionally, you can get TAT certified on either June 19th at Inland Kenworth or on June 20 at Utility Trailer. Click here for more details and to register for this free certification course. There will be classes offered every hour from 8am to 4pm on June 19th at Inland Kenworth and the 20th at Utility Trailer. Each hour class is limited to 50 people.
Thanks to the generous donations from Kenworth and component sponsors, the truck is fully loaded with a 76-inch sleeper, 485-hp Paccar MX-13 engine, and Eaton Fuller Advantage 10-speed automated transmission.
Don Blake, Inland Kenworth’s truck sales manager in the Phoenix area, spearheaded this fundraising effort, after listening to a TAT presentation.
“I had to wipe the tears from my eyes after learning the horrors that TAT rescues people from today,” he said. “I knew right then that I wanted to help our industry combat human trafficking. With the support of Inland Kenworth and Kenworth Truck Co. we decided to build a special truck with the idea of having the cost offset by Kenworth and component sponsors. The response was nothing short of unbelievable. This project has mobilized a group of caring industry suppliers, and together we are going to help save some lives.”
