Doug’s Market Message

May, 2018

May was an exciting month at KCI Kansas City. We celebrated our KCI Cares Charity month which highlights the charities we partner with each year. We kicked the month off with our annual KCI Cares Charity Golf Classic tournament which welcomed 26 teams to Tiffany Greens Golf Course. During the month, representatives for the charities attended the auction each Thursday to help create awareness for their cause. In addition, they helped raised money by selling “hearts” and asking for donations in the auction lanes. Customers participated in the fundraising and some helped by opting to donate per vehicle bought and/or sold. All in all, it was a very successful month and I extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated.

In May, we announced this year’s Guitars and Cars headliner – Big & Rich! We took a different approach with this year’s announcement. Prior to Thursday’s Fish Fry Promotional Sale, our sales and marketing team replicated Big & Rich’s “Save a Horse” video. Team mates entered the auction arena in a 1974 white Cadillac Eldorado handing out “$100 bills” while “Save a Horse” blared in the auction arena. Dealers, filled with anticipation for the announcement, clapped and shouted with excitement. Big and Rich will perform on August 15th following our Guitars & Cars Wednesday corporate sale.

Mark you calendars for our Golf Giveaway sale scheduled for June 13th and 14th. The sale will feature 1,600 corporate and dealer units, exciting in-lane giveaways and $7,500 in post-sale prizes including the ultimate golf getaway. If you need assistance with your travel accommodations, contact our sales team at 816.502.3318.

– I look forward to seeing you in the lanes,
Doug
