Yamaha Launches “Assembled in USA” Rhino Sweepstakes
More than $11,000 Went to Honored American Veterans Afield and Feed The Children Last Year
CYPRESS, Calif. – January 15, 2013 – Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., is giving away a Tactical Black Special Edition Rhino 700 FI to help raise awareness and money for the Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) and Feed the Children charities. Yamaha’s second “Assembled in U.S.A.” sweepstakes will again raise money through $5 donations when individuals enter to win the new Rhino.
Yamaha is starting to collect donations January 15 at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show), the largest outdoors industry trade show, and online at: www.yamahaoutdoors.com/rhinoforcharity
The Special Edition Rhino, which is decked out in tactical accessories, is valued at more than $13,000 and is Yamaha’s most off-road capable and durable Side-by-Side vehicle (SxS) featuring the exclusive Ultramtic® automatic transmission, the most durable CVT system in the industry, and Yamaha’s On-Command® push-button 2WD, 4WD and 4WD diff-lock system.
The Tactical Black Rhino that will be given away at the end of the sweepstakes features an all-new matte black body and cast aluminum wheels for tactical design and durability. Like all of Yamaha’s 4×4 Grizzly ATVs, the Rhino comes straight from Yamaha’s production line in Newnan, Ga.
“Last year’s sweepstakes was a huge success with Yamaha raising more than $11,000 for two very deserving charities, HAVA and FTC,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “Yamaha is extremely proud to show our continued support to these organizations, and we look forward to giving away a class-leading Rhino 700 to a deserving outdoorsman this summer.”
Yamaha is a founding sponsor of HAVA (www.honoredveterans.org), an organization created to help disabled soldiers and veterans with the healing process through active participation in outdoors sports. Yamaha has worked with Feed the Children (www.feedthechildren.org) for more than 10 years raising several hundred thousand dollars and feeding tens of thousands of children. Yamaha will donate all money raised through the raffle evenly between the two organizations.
