Titan Tire Auction Raises $91,000 for State FFA Chapters
USAgNet - 01/18/2019

Titan International, Inc. announces $91,481 has been raised for several state FFA chapters in Iowa, Nebraska and Georgia from special event tire auctions in 2018. The auctions provide the public with a great opportunity to purchase Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires with 100 percent of proceeds going to support their state FFA organization.

For more than 20 years, Titan has held tire auctions at a variety of farm shows. This year's shows included Farm Progress Show, Husker Harvest Days and Sunbelt Ag Expo.

"Through Titan's incredible generosity, more than $25,000 was raised to help FFA and agricultural education programs that would not have been funded without this support," says Josh Remington, executive director, Iowa FFA Foundation. "With a record membership of more than 15,000 Iowa FFA members, each dollar is stretched to the fullest to provide maximum support for these students and helps us eliminate all financial barriers.

"This ensures each student can develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. Developing the next generation of agricultural leaders is possible because of the investment Titan makes in Iowa FFA."

Each year, Titan auctions off thousands of tires for FFA chapters, using all proceeds as monetary support for education and hands-on leadership training. Titan's first FFA tire auction took place in 1996 at the Farm Progress Show and Sunbelt Ag Expo. Both auctions continue to this day.
