Mayor Harold Weinbrecht was honored with the 23rd annual John B. Ross, Jr. Leadership Award by the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau for his leadership and vision in transforming the Town of Cary into a premier sports destination. Cary is widely known for its world-class sports facilities and for hosting sporting events, including more than 60 NCAA and ACC events in just the last 15 years. More than 5 million people have come through the gates of WakeMed Soccer Park, USA Baseball Training Complex and the Cary Tennis Park, generating an economic impact of more than $100 million. Mayor Weinbrecht accepted the award at the 2019 Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau Awards luncheon.
