outsidersball003_thumbDear SNEWS Reader,

For the past two summers at Outdoor Retailer, industry leaders like yourself have come together on one night to support one common cause – to celebrate, support and help activate a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts. Hosted by the Outdoor Foundation, and sponsored by SNEWS/O.R. Daily, among many others, the Outsiders Ball has raised nearly $700,000 and supported over 200 community projects across the country – many recommended by our specialty retailers.

It’s Summer Market’s must-attend event, attracting hundreds of the industry’s top retailers, brands and reps.

So we’re asking you to join us again or for the first time at 6p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015 at the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City.

This year we’re inviting every person, brand and business to get involved in the cause by coming to the Outsiders Ball. With new interactive challenges, there are plenty opportunities for everyone to sponsor a college campus, National Park Service or non-profit project across the country in some meaningful way. Come and see the event for yourself.

Bring a friend, colleague or important account for delicious food, local tasty (and real) libations, great music and interesting conversation.

To purchase tickets to the Ball, visit outsidersball.org.

Thank you for your time and support,

– Chris Fanning, executive director, Outdoor Foundation
