  Manhattan Mortgage Opening Day at the Hampton Classic

12:00 PM - Ms. Cohn will join Executive Director Shanette Barth on the Derby Bank and together they will welcome the many guests (equestrian, equine and spectators) and announce the beginning of the 33rd edition of the Hampton Classic Horse Show.

12:30 PM - Ms. Cohn will join the media at the Press Luncheon and thank them for their support and presence.  And then will join her guests in her chalet.

ABOUT OPENING DAY:  Opening Day is the kick-off day for the week-long Hampton Classic Horse Show, which this year takes place August 24-31. For one week 70 acres of year-round barren land are transformed into a bustling horsey mini city.  Opening Day is about the local Hamptons and Long Island horse enthusiasts whether on horseback or in the audience.  As the first day of the horse show, it paves the way for the Olympic veterans and nation’s finest equestrians who start their competitions that afternoon in the Nicolock Time Challenge which kicks off at 1:00 PM.  On Opening Day the local riders can compete under the very same prestigious conditions at one of the finest horse shows in the world.  Ms. Cohn will also be competing at this year’s Hampton Classic just as she has many times before.



  Ms. Cohn is both a rider and the President/CEO of the Manhattan Mortgage Company, which she founded in 1985. She is an expert in the mortgage field and in 2007 was recognized with a Stevie Award, touted as the business world Oscars.  Also in 2007, she was named “#1 Mortgage Originator” in the nation by Mortgage Originator Magazine.   In May 2008, she was recognized as one of “The 100 Most Powerful People in New York Real Estate” by The New York Observer.  For the past three years (2006-2008) Development New York Magazine has recognized Ms. Cohn as one of the “Top 20 Women in Real Estate and Construction.”

Cohn is a well known philanthropist and was honored in May 2007 with the Spirit of Life award from City of Hope for her charitable work.  Some of her causes include Volunteers of America, Habitat for Humanity, Child Development Center of the Hamptons, the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes and The Retreat.

 Ms. Cohn began her sponsorship of Opening Day because she wanted to give back to the community that has supported her.  She continues to sponsor year after year for that very same reason.  When she started with the Hampton Classic her company was just ten years old and still growing.  Now 13 years later she continues to be named the Top Mortgage Originator in the nation and last year negotiated over 3 billion in originations. 

ABOUT MANHATTAN MORTGAGE:  The Manhattan Mortgage Company has 15 offices, eleven in New York (Manhattan - 2), Brooklyn, Rye, Harrison, Croton-on-Hudson, Jericho, Westhampton, Southampton, Bridgehampton and East Hampton), and offices in Upper Montclair, NJ; Westport, CT; Mooresville, NC and Palm Beach, FL.
