- Fans take home wins including a new 2013 Acura ILX -
TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - For many, Sunday's Toronto Blue Jays™ game
signaled the end of the regular 2013 baseball season, but Honda awarded
prizes to keep three lucky fans busy during the long wait for spring
training. Cambridge, Ontario's Robert Richmond, will take to the open
road in his brand new 2013 Acura ILX and Castleton, Ontario's Michael
Lazette can hit the trails on his TRX420 ATV. A new EU2000KC2 power
generator means the lights will always be on at Motie Jadunandan's
Pickering, Ontario home and his driveway will always be clear with a
new HSS724TCD snowblower.
Honda Canada, proud sponsor of the Toronto Blue Jays™, has awarded close
to $200,000 worth of Honda automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs and power
equipment to lucky baseball fans throughout the 2013 season, including
a Honda lawnmower at each one of the 81 home games.
"Our relationship with the Toronto Blue Jays spans more than three
decades and the fans are a very big part of why we're here," said Jerry
Chenkin, president and CEO of Honda Canada Inc. "I'd like to
congratulate not just Sunday's winners, but the many lucky fans who
have driven, ridden or carried Honda prizes home during the 2013
season. See you in the spring."
