Sept. 6, 2007

Titan Tire Corp. raised $50,000 at its annual Future Farmers of America (FFA) fundraiser auction, held at the 2007 Farm Progress show in Decatur, Ill., last week.

Total proceeds will be divided between the Illinois and Indiana FFA chapters.

"As a former FFA member and local officer, I applaud the organization's efforts to continue the pursuit of agricultural education and development," says Jeff Vasichek, Titan's vice president of sales and marketing.

Titan donated a wide range of agricultural, construction and ATV tires to the event, in addition to seed corn, crop chemicals and other items.

Titan Tire Corp., headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, is a subsidiary of Titan International Inc.
