Honda Canada Hits Three Home Runs with Fans at the Blue Jays Honda Home Opener

April 10, 2012 (Toronto, ON) – Honda Canada knocked it out of the park at the Blue Jays Honda Home Opener last night, awarding three baseball fans with incredible prizes. Peter Lichty from Kitchener won an all-new 2012 Honda CR-V, the popular, made-in-Canada compact SUV. Kirk Makin will be riding around Toronto on a brand new Honda CBR250R – an ideal bike for new riders – this summer, and John Paul Del Monte from Toronto’s lawn will be well cared for with his new Honda lawnmower and trimmer. The Honda HRX2173HYC lawnmower features Honda’s exclusive MicroCutTM offset twin-blade system for finer clippings and the Honda Trimmer HHT25SLTC is light, powerful and packed with innovative features. 

Honda Canada, the proud provider of the Official Vehicle of the Blue Jays™ and Rogers Centre™, hosted the Honda Home Opener celebrations against the Boston Red Sox on Monday, April 9th. 

“Honda’s relationship with the Blue Jays spans 35 years and we couldn’t be more thrilled to support Canada’s baseball team and help kick off another great season,” said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice president, Honda Canada Inc. “I‘m happy to award these three baseball fans with some of our most beloved products, and know they’ll become a Honda fan if they aren’t already!”

Honda has many more great initiatives and promotions planned for the 2012 season and the company has also partnered with the Toronto Blue Jays™ to run Blue Jays Honda Super Camps in 14 cities throughout the summer.
