Merced, CA – The chance to win a $52,575 wakeboard boat with a requested $20 donation is reason enough to enter the Malibu Boats Sweepstakes, but Malibu gives you an even bigger reason to participate. The money raised will be passed to the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research. Your ticket could win you a boat, help save lives or both. Malibu Boats has pledged a 2006 vRide, which will be given away at the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event on April 29th in Merced, CA to aid in the fight against cancer.
Malibu’s quest to find a cure began with the cancer diagnoses of two well-loved employees, Becky Sewell and Kathy Anderson. Their untimely deaths prompted Malibu Boats employee-owners to wage their own battle against cancer four years ago. Taking the lead from these two determined women, the Malibu family has continued the fight to improve awareness and increase funding for cancer research.
Since 2003, Malibu employees have donated a total of $60,500 for the American Cancer Society – $28,000 of this total was raised last year alone. Malibu’s "Relay for Life" team members are striving to double that total this year with the addition of the Malibu Boats 2006 vRide Sweepstakes.
"Almost everybody we know has some loved one who is either dealing with cancer or has been lost to cancer," said Heidi Verna, Team Malibu Relay for Life Event Director and HR Manager for Malibu Boats. "It hits home for so many people and it is our love for family we have lost, and those still fighting, that keeps us raising money."
The 2006 Malibu vRide will go to the winning ticket holder complete with an Extreme tandem-axle trailer, a Titan Series III tower, a 320 horse power LCR engine from Indmar, a thumping Sony/Kicker Stereo System, a new Power Wedge and 900 lbs. of Malibu Launch System ballast.
This vRide is one-of-a-kind with customized Malibu Breast Cancer Awareness vinyl graphics with Ebony and Pink Ribbon gel coat. Pink Ribbon was adopted as one of Malibu’s 21 custom colors for the '06 model-year in memory of the beloved Malibu family members who have been lost to cancer and as a tribute to those who continue to battle the disease. The Malibu Boats Sweepstakes vRide will signify hope to the sweepstakes winner as well as anyone who sees this boat sailing down the road or ripping up the lake.
This sweepstakes prize will be a complete package for the winner. Malibu’s industry partners are kicking in to further the cause and sweeten the pot. Titan Towers is donating a Series III titan Tower and a set of Tower Speakers Extreme Trailers is committing an Ebony tandem axel trailer. Boater’s Insurance is providing one year of full coverage boat insurance to accompany the vRide. Liquid Force is donating a new girls handle, vest, and wakeskate. Spillar Hitches is donating a tow hitch assembly for the winner’s vehicle. Other Malibu cohorts have built their contributions into the boat itself.
