Honda Canada Hits a Home Run with Fans at the Toronto Blue JaysTM Honda Home Opener

One lucky Blue Jays fan took home a 2016 Honda CR-V

April 11, 2016 (Toronto, ON) – Honda Canada knocked it out of the park at the sold-out Toronto Blue Jays™ Honda Home Opener Friday night, awarding three baseball fans with incredible prizes. As a proud supporter of the Toronto Blue Jays for more than 35 years, Honda kicked-off the 2016 baseball season by giving away a Canadian-built 2016 Honda CR-V. Nine fans were randomly selected during the game and through a process of elimination, three (3) finalists competed for the grand prize while a sold-out crowd cheered them on.

With the help of Toronto Blue Jays mascot, Ace, Andrew Grein of Brampton, Ontario left the Rogers Centre as the proud owner of the brand new Honda CR-V. The remaining two semi-finalists each received a Honda lawnmower, just in time to make their yard look as good as the outfield.

“The Blue Jays are Canada’s baseball club and we’re very proud to have been their partner for so many memorable years,” said Dave Gardner, Senior Vice President of Operations, Honda Canada Inc. “What an exciting way to start the new season and congratulations to all winners of fantastic Honda products.”
