Weinberg Harris & Associates to Facilitate USHJA Sponsorship Acquisitions

February 19, 2008

USHJA is proud to announce that as of December 2007 Weinberg Harris & Associates has been engaged by the Boards of Directors of the United States Hunter Jumper Association to facilitate all sponsorship acquisition and fulfillment for the organization. In less than 60 days WHA has already acquired several new corporate sponsors for the USHJA International Hunter Derby including title sponsor, ASG Software Solutions and presenting sponsor, Dietrich Insurance.

WHA comes to USHJA with over 20 years of sponsorship and public relations experience. William Moroney, president of USHJA, stated, "Their hard work, dedication and experience will launch the association into the world of corporate sponsorships." Tracey Weinberg, president of WHA, will guide the USHJA sponsorship acquisitions with more than 20 years experience in the public relations and marketing industries. Weinberg, a leading amateur rider in both the hunter and high-performance jumper disciplines, has been competing in the equestrian world for more than 25 years.

Patricia Wise, an avid horseback rider and competitor for more than 10 years, will assist Weinberg and USHJA in the sponsorship arena. Prior to WHA, Wise served as both a fundraiser and legislative counsel to Florida Congresswoman Tillie K. Fowler and New Jersey Congressman Jim Saxton.

"Our hallmark has always been to help clients leverage individual expertise and success in conjunction with media generation, reputation enhancement and empowerment to achieve business goals. Coupled with several decades of equestrian competition at the highest level, our team will apply the same philosophy to our equestrian-oriented clients." Said Tracey Weinberg, president of Weinberg Harris & Associates.

WHA has provided marketing and public relations account services, including strategic guidance, media relations, event coordination, and sponsorship outreach and coordination for numerous equestrian clients including the Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs and the Washington International Horse Show (WIHS).
