Yamaha Outdoors has donated a Viking VI Side-by-Side to Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) for use with the disabled veterans and injured active military which it serves.
Yamaha, an original HAVA founding company, and one of its largest sponsors, donated the $15,000 vehicle to allow HAVA to better accommodate the needs of its veterans for off-road transportation, particularly during hunts in remote locations. The first use of the new SxS was during an early-December elk hunt near the NRA Wittington Center which hosted 10 disabled participants in the snow and freezing temperatures at altitudes above 10,000 feet.
Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., is donating $15,000 to two of the company’s charitable organization partners: Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) and Feed the Children (FTC).
Yamaha recently gathered select motorsports dealers for an incentive and appreciation event near Austin, Texas, where the company unveiled the all-new 2015 Viking VI EPS six-person Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicle. The launch event-turned-celebration of Yamaha’s SxS line expansion included a number of activities that ultimately allowed Yamaha corporate staff and dealers to help raise awareness and money for HAVA and FTC. As a result of the event, Yamaha committed to donating $15,000 to be split evenly between the two organizations.
For the second straight year, Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A. is giving away a vehicle to raise funds and awareness for Honored American Veterans Afield and Feed the Children.
The “Assembled in USA” Rhino sweepstakes runs through May 31. For a chance to win the Tactical Black Special Edition Rhino 700 FI, simply donate $5 via online at www.yamahaoutdoors.com/rhinoforcharity.
This year’s contest was launched at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show), the largest outdoors industry trade show. Yamaha will be selling tickets onsite at the NRA Show in St. Louis May 3-5.
