Proceeds of Kawasaki Ninja® 650 auction to support Oceana and their mission of protecting the world’s oceans
IRVINE, Calif. (August 14, 2014) – Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. announced recently that they will donate a Ninja 650 sportbike for auction at the Oceana SeaChange Summer Party, attended by some of the largest supporters of Ocean Conservation in Hollywood including Ted Danson, Sheryl Crow and this year’s special guest, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Proceeds from the auction of the Ninja 650 will go to Oceana’s mission of ocean conservation, a shared goal by Kawasaki who’s global mission is “working as one for the good of the planet.” Some of Oceana’s victories include protecting Sperm Whales from California Fisheries, upholding Shark fin bans in the United States and many other policy victories for marine life and habitats in more than 150 countries.
“Kawasaki is proud to support such a worthy cause that won’t simply affect our lives, but it will impact our children’s lives and the lives of their children,” says Chris Brull, Kawasaki Marketing Communications Director. “Ocean conservation is a critical and vital cause and every little bit counts.”
The Kawasaki Ninja 650 sportbike will be on auction at the SeaChange Summer Party on August 16, 2014, taking place at an exclusive villa on the Pacific Ocean. To learn more about Oceana and their mission of ocean conservation, please visit oceana.org, or seachangesummerparty.org
