2010 Truck Stampede Winner!

November 13th concluded one of Indiana FFA’s largest fundraisers:  2010 Truck Stampede.  The Truck Stampede gives local FFA chapters the opportunity to participate in a fundraiser for not only them, but for the Indiana FFA Foundation as well.  For each $5 truck ticket a FFA chapter sold, they were able to keep $4 for themselves and the other $1 went to the Indiana FFA Foundation.  Twenty seven FFA chapters participated this year in the Truck Stampede raising more than $32,000 for the chapters and nearly $8,000 for the Indiana FFA Foundation.

On November 13th, the lucky ticket was drawn at the Indiana FFA Leadership Center in Trafalgar, Indiana and Nathan Hitts of Huntingburg, Indiana was the lucky winner of a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 4WD Ext. Cab LT which was provided by Bill Estes Chevrolet!  Nathan bought his ticket from Alyssa Terry, an FFA member from the Springs Valley FFA Chapter.

My teammates, Morgan Dawson, Megan Klotz, and I along with our Program Specialist, Lindsey Calhoun, had the opportunity to travel up to Bill Estes Chevrolet (located on Michigan Road, right off the I-465 exit) where we met with Alyssa Terry, Nathan Hitts, and Bill Estes!

The prize black pick-up truck seemed too good to be true for Nathan as he eyed it with his mouth dropped open!

 On behalf of the Indiana FFA Association, I would like to thank Nathan Hitts for supporting the Indiana FFA by simply buying a $5 truck ticket. 

 I would also like to thank Bill Estes Chevrolet for supporting and partnering up with the Indiana FFA by providing a brand new pick-up truck for the past two years.  We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Bill Estes Chevrolet through the 2011 Truck Stampede.
