Yamaha Supports SEAL–Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation

Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, has once again provided a new Side-by-Side (SxS), the Viking VI Special Edition (SE), to the SEAL–Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Family Foundation for auction at its annual fundraiser near San Diego, California. Assembled in the USA at Yamaha's Newnan, Georgia, factory, the Viking VI SE raised $17,000 toward the organization's mission of supporting SEAL members' families. This marks Yamaha's fourth consecutive year of aiding NSW, for a total of nearly $90,000 in funding for the much-deserving recipients.

The SEAL–Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation is a San Diego–based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 2008, that raises awareness and funds for special programs in direct support of the NSW families on a local, national, and global scale. Further details about the NSW organization and fundraiser can be found at SupportOurWarriors.org and SealFamilyFoundation.org.

“Yamaha is honored to continue its support of the SEAL–NSW Family Foundation and its important mission of assisting the families of those who defend our freedoms,” says Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “We know this highly respected organization’s event and donor support will continue to raise awareness and assistance for the brave SEAL–NSW families.”

"Yamaha has been a great supporter of our event over the past four years, and their vehicles are an auction favorite," says William R. Fenick, Capt., USN (Ret), executive director for SEAL–NSW. "We are dedicated to supporting the needs of these important families, and partners like Yamaha allow us to provide the right programs—both now and in the future." (yamahamotorsports.com)
