Smooth Performance and Sharp Turns: Schick Quattro Signs on as Sponsor for the Honda Indy Toronto

    TORONTO, May 20 /CNW/ - Schick announced today it has signed a
sponsorship agreement with Andretti Green Toronto for the 2009 Honda Indy
Toronto. Schick Quattro will be an associate sponsor of the Honda Indy
Toronto, which will take to the streets of Toronto from July 10-12, 2009.
    "Staying sharp, delivering a top performance and the best results every
time - these are attributes that you find with both champion drivers and
Schick Quattro Razors, making our sponsorship with the Honda Indy Toronto a
natural fit," says Erik Rahner, Marketing Director Schick Canada. "We are
excited to be partnering with Andretti Green, a team with a great tradition
and winning history here in Toronto."
    To celebrate its sponsorship, Schick Quattro is gearing up with a series
of pre-race and race-week sampling, contesting and consumer activities
including the most extreme ride of the summer - a giant 6 x 6 foot Razor.
Schick is inviting consumers to live on the edge and Ride the Schick Razor,
challenging them to hang on as it spins, flexes and pivots during race week
and at the track on race weekend. Schick also encourages race fans to join the
talented team of Schick Quattro estheticians and receive advice on the facial
hair treatment that's best suited to your style. Put their advice to the test
