Paint Horse Congress ups visibility in new APHA headquarters
Visitors to the new APHA International Headquarters in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards District will see the Paint Horse Congress and the Kansas Paint Horse Association prominently displayed after a generous gift to the American Paint Horse Foundation’s Capital Campaign.
The Paint Horse Congress, sponsored by the Kansas Paint Horse Association has contributed $10,000 to the American Paint Horse Foundation’s Capital Campaign—specifically to complete the inside of APHA’s headquarters in late 2019. “We feel its important to support the American Paint Horse Association in this move that will expose the American Paint Horse to millions of visitors each year; many of those who may not be familiar with our breed. If we can assist in gaining the interest of even a small percentage of those visitors, it benefits the entire Paint Horse industry,” said Casey West, Paint Horse Congress Chairman.
Both the Paint Horse Congress and Kansas Paint Horse Association will be recognized on the office stairwell leading to an area designated for the Hall of Fame and educational endeavors. Join these two groups and “Put Your Name On It”.
Your “Put Your Name On It” contribution will help to ensure the breed we all love so much is well-represented in front of millions of visitors from around the world each year. The office interior will feature art, saddles, bronzes and other artifacts from APHA history. APHA and the Foundation send a heartfelt thank-you to the Paint Horse Congress and the Kansas Paint Horse Association for their generosity and support. Learn how you can get involved.
If you want to be a part of this exciting move, here are ways you can donate to the American Paint Horse Foundation. APHA’s offices and store will look fantastic for the more than 2.5 million visitors per year to this prize destination.
Making a gift to the Last Legacy Capital Campaign is easy. You can send a check payable to “American Paint Horse Foundation” and give to the Capital Campaign as a whole. You can also use your credit card and give your gift with this link.
If your club has not held it’s election for Officers and Directors as of January 1, you still need to send your current officers and directors to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your election date.
