Weego adds two 2017 sponsorships

Weego said it is sponsoring professional angler Adrian Avena and The Bass University this year.

Weego, a maker of portable jump starters and rechargeable battery packs, said it is sponsoring professional angler Adrian Avena and The Bass University this year.

Avena will represent Weego at all Bassmaster Elite Series tournaments and throughout this year. In a separate deal, Weego was named the official jump starter of The Bass University.

“The latest release of our award-winning, patented, ultra-simple and crazy-safe Weego portable jump starters has taken the boating industry by storm,” Weego CEO Gerry Toscani said in a statement. “With built-in protections and certified IP65 to survive and thrive in the worst conditions, the Weego family of jump starters are perfect for keeping anglers in the fight and getting them back to shore safely.

“We want to show those just starting out to the seasoned pro our commitment to the sport by supporting educational programs like The Bass University and by promoting a young upstart fishing star like Adrian Avena. And he is right in our backyard, too.”

Avena will be featured in the Weego booth at the 2017 Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo in Houston during published dates and times from March 24-26.
