CA --Yamaha Motor Corp. is giving

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

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 4x4 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,"
Steve Nessl, Yamaha's ATV/SxS group marketing manager, said. "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 outdoor 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.
