Selected as Official Auction Company for
Ducks Unlimited 2010 National Convention

March 15, 2010 (Kansas City, Mo.) – Ducks Unlimited, the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to conserving North America’s continually disappearing waterfowl habitats, has selected United Country Auction Services as the official auction company for their 73rd Annual National Convention to be held in Gaylord, Texas, May 26-30, 2010. 

United Country will conduct the organization’s annual live and online benefit auction during the convention’s reception and banquet, Saturday, May 29.  Auction proceeds benefit Ducks Unlimited conservation projects.

In 2007, Ducks Unlimited and United Country announced their national partnership focused on educating real estate professionals, auctioneers and land buyers and sellers about land conservation, habitat protection through conservation easements, opportunities to volunteer and charitable giving. 

Through this partnership, United Country Auction Services and its affiliated auctioneers and real estate professionals across the nation have helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit DU’s mission. Most recently, United Country raised another $35,000 for Ducks Unlimited at the United Country Annual Benefit Auction held during the company’s national convention in New Orleans, La., in February. 

“United Country is in a unique position to not only raise funds to support DU’s vision, but also to promote responsible and long-range land stewardship issues across the United States. We are honored to be partnered with this organization and are committed to supporting their mission,” said Mike Jones, president of United Country Auction Services.

Information about the Ducks Unlimited mission as well as donation and membership options can be found at www.Ducks.org.
