CYPRESS, Calif. – Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., raised more than $11,000 through its recent “Assembled in U.S.A.” Grizzly Giveaway.  The funds will be split evenly and donated to the Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) and Feed the Children (FTC) charities.

Through the fundraiser, which was launched last fall and ran until April 23, Yamaha donated a one-of-a-kind 2012 Grizzly 700 FI EPS ATV (MSRP $9,749) to help raise awareness and money for HAVA and FTC.  Yamaha collected $5 donations from individuals entering to win the new Grizzly.  William Rice from Newbury Park, Calif., was the randomly selected winner of the new Grizzly ATV.

“Yamaha Outdoors was part of founding HAVA five years ago and has been an ongoing sustaining sponsor in support of its mission to serve disabled vets and wounded active duty military personnel in outdoor sports,” said HAVA Chairman Tom Taylor.  “HAVA is grateful for this additional support which will allow for even more hunts and shooting events for the American Heroes the organization serves.”
