Case IH has pledged to match funds raised in the sale of four paintings created at the 2013 Farm Progress Show in tribute to the "Year of the Farmer" Ram Trucks campaign. The matching pledge will directly benefit the FFA chapter of each winning bidder's choice.
The four paintings are original performance pieces created by celebrity speed painter Dan Dunn.
"Dan Dunn has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and in numerous concert performances," says Dan Danford, sponsorship manager for Case IH. "He typically sells his paintings for thousands of dollars, so the potential donation to local FFA chapters is substantial."
The sale is hosted by Heritage Auctions at www.HA.com/FFA. The auction is live now and ends on Sept. 30, 2013, at 10 p.m. CST.
All of the funds from the auction will be presented to FFA at the 2013 National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky., Oct. 30-Nov. 2.
