Toro Gives Away Two Walt Disney World® Resort Vacations During 2006 Irrigation Show
Suzanne Heimbach and Shanon Holden Win 4-day, 3-night Vacations To Walt Disney World Resort
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Dec. 12, 2006) – Two lucky Toro Irrigation customers will soon be going to the Magical
Kingdom. Suzanne Heimbach, commercial account manager for Choate Irrigation, and Shanon Holden, owner of
Lubbock Turf Irrigation, are the winners of Toro Irrigation’s Walt Disney World® Resort Vacation Giveaway at the
2006 International Irrigation Show in San Antonio. Each package includes four days and three nights at the Walt
Disney World Resort for four people, $100 Disney Dollars, a $1,000 U.S. travel voucher and four 4-day Disney
Park Hopper Passes.
―I’ve never been to Walt Disney World, so I can’t wait to go,‖ Heimbach said. ―I’m going to pick a time when it’s
not so busy so my husband and I can focus on having fun without having to endure the long lines. We’re going to
be a couple of big kids running around Disney World.‖
―I have been to Disney World before as a kid, and now I’m incredibly thrilled to take my whole family,‖ said
Holden. ―I feel very lucky—it’s not every day you’re offered a vacation to Disney World. I know my family will
have fun just as much as I did, and for me, it would be a great way to take a break from work.‖
Heimbach and Holden said that winning Toro’s Walt Disney World Vacation Giveaway during the show was a
wonderful, though unexpected, treat. However, both attended the IA Show with one goal in mind: to get more
information about upcoming products soon to hit the market.
―Our customers are always asking us about new products and innovative ways of designing irrigation systems,‖
said Heimbach. ―The IA Show was the perfect place to learn about what’s coming up in the industry. I even got to
play around with different controllers, heads and two-wire systems.‖

―Toro’s booth was particularly good this year,‖ said Holden. ―They had a lot of information on their new products
and the Toro representatives at the booth were very helpful in answering my questions.‖
Specializing in both residential and commercial, Choate Irrigation is the largest irrigation company in the South and
uses a wide variety of Toro’s products including rotors, controllers, heads and valves.
―Choate Irrigation has been using Toro irrigation products for at least 16 years, and we’ve delivered nothing but
successful irrigation systems to our clients using Toro’s products,‖ said Heimbach. ―We haven’t had to go back and
do a lot of repairs and upkeep, which says a lot about the product. They hold up very well.‖
Lubbock Turf Irrigation works with both commercial and residential customers. ―Toro is a great company that
provides quality, dependable and durable products,‖ said Holden. ―It was extremely generous and thoughtful of
Toro to give something back to their customers.‖
Toro is the official provider of turf maintenance equipment for Walt Disney World Resort.
