DEKALB and the American Red Cross
Since 1912, the DEKALB brand has been the nation's leading provider of corn seed to the American farmer. And since 1881, the American Red Cross has been the nation's premier provider of emergency relief, responding to nearly 70,000 disasters every year.
It's been a tough year, as rural America has been hit hard with natural disasters like tornadoes and floods. That’s why DEKALB and the American Red Cross are joining forces to provide support for those in need.
On January 20, 2012, the DEKALB-themed chopper will be auctioned off in support of the American Red Cross. Motorcyclists, DEKALB enthusiasts and chopper collectors will have an opportunity to submit bids through the online auction that will be featured on the DEKALB website. The online auction aligns with the actual birth date of DEKALB and will run through April 1, 2012. All proceeds go to support the American Red Cross. The bike will be presented to the winning bidder at the 2012 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa.
