Annual Titan Tire auctions raise more than $82,000 for state FFA chapters in 2019


DES MOINES, Iowa — Titan International, Inc. (Titan) is proud to announce a combined fundraising total of more than $82,000 tobenefit FFA chapters in Illinois, Indiana, Georgia, Nebraska and South Dakota as a result of special event tire auctions in 2019. For more than two decades, Titan has held auctions at various farm shows where the public can purchase Titan and Goodyear® Farm Tires with 100 percent of proceeds going to support their state FFA organization. This year’s shows included Dakotafest, Farm Progress Show, Husker Harvest Days and Sunbelt Ag Expo.

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

“This is one of our favorite ways to give back,” said Scott Sloan, agricultural products manager for Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires. “We are proud to support FFA’s commitment to developing future leaders. Plus, growers get the chance to bid on a variety of farm tires at a highly discounted price.”
