    Why should you sponsor?

    Similar to the “huddle” that takes place in the locker room before a big game, men require a “huddle” of their own to understand modern society and their place in it -- as well as to strategize in a safe environment free from figurative and literal external noise. We are directly addressing this need, by calling men into The Huddle; a men-only event created as a space to discuss prevalent topics impacting our communities and day-to-day lives. Through this event, we bring aspirational men in our community together with men who are still on their journey to success, creating an event that appeals to a wide audience within a niche demographic.
