World Ag Expo Toyota Tundra Truck Giveaway supports Valley FFA

Visitors to World Ag Expo Feb. 10-12, in Tulare, Calif., have a chance at winning a new 2009 Toyota Tundra by entering the World Ag Expo FFA Tundra Giveaway.

Toyota and blue-jacketed members of the Central and San Joaquin FFA Regions are collaborating on a unique program to support FFA programs in more than 47 high schools in the two Valley regions.

The $30,000 grand prize truck is a new 2009 Toyota Tundra Double Cab SR5 4 x 2 with 5.7L V8 engine, donated by Toyota. The Tundra will be given away during the final day of World Ag Expo. Funds raised from the giveaway will go directly to benefit the FFA chapters in the Central and San Joaquin Regions.

The drawing is scheduled for 3 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 12, at the Toyota exhibit area.

Tickets for the giveaway are available for a suggested donation of $5 each through various FFA chapters, online at and from FFA members at each entry gate during World Ag Expo. However, no purchase is necessary to enter the giveaway.

The donations support ongoing programs and activities of FFA chapters in more than 47 high schools within the Central Valley. "Toyota's gesture is a real help in supporting FFA students and projects in our area," says San Joaquin Regional Supervisor Ken Harris.

"We're pleased to support the ongoing activities and programs of the San Joaquin Region FFA, said Toyota's San Francisco Region, truck manager Jason Whitmire. "These young people are the cornerstone of California's agricultural future and if we can help by donating this Tundra we know that future will be bright."

The truck winner need not be present to win. The winner will be responsible for taxes, license, transportation from dealership and registration of the vehicle.
