5/23/2008 [Corporate]Routine Snowmobile Maintenance Leads to $22,000 in Prizes
Erin and Amy Keegan with their daughters Laura (4) and Karalyn (2).
Intended to express appreciation to its customers and promote its "One Yamaha" corporate philosophy, the "Win The World of Yamaha" Sweepstakes represented a joint effort of Yamaha Corporation of America, Yamaha Electronics Corporation and Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA.
Keegan and his family have been having a wonderful time putting the prizes to good use. The WaveRunner will come in handy for an upcoming family outing. "I was planning on renting a water craft for a family vacation in June. Now I don't have to!" The Home Theatre in a Box has been put through the paces playing, among other things, numerous Alvin and the Chipmunks selections for Keegan's young daughters. "It's a great system," he says.
Because there was no room for it in his home, the Clavinova CLP-265 GP digital piano presented the opportunity to perform a good deed. Keegan and his wife Amy donated the instrument to the local High School. "We wanted to be sure it would be used every day," explains Keegan. "We didn't have enough room for it and the school was in dire straits for a new piano, so it's nice to know that it's getting used."
Keegan poses with the vintage Snowmobile that started it all.
Besides experiencing Yamaha's wide range of top-notch products first-hand, winning the sweepstakes brought about another realization: he now looks at the Yamaha logo in an entirely new way. "I never realized that they were actually three tuning forks. There are so many different lines of business. It's easy to forget that Yamaha does so many things."
