In 2017, a small group of sports-minded women came together to launch the Las Vegas Bowl Huddle. Created to support the overall mission of the Las Vegas Bowl in the community, the Huddle focuses annually on elevating the bowl’s presence in the market through community activations, youth football, VIP hospitality and memorable bowl week experiences.
Today, the Huddle is over 40 strong and continues to grow its commitment to the Las Vegas community on a year-round basis. Whether it be through the Extra Yard for Teachers Grant Program or the Youth Football Ambassadors Program the Huddle is dedicated to using the platform of the nationally televised bowl game to better our community.
Come bowl week, the Huddle is proud to showcase our home and incredible city to the participating teams through curated VIP experiences, a memorable Ladies Day and ONE VEGAS.
The LVB Huddle supports community and philanthropic efforts during Bowl Week, including charities, Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, Make a Wish of Southern Nevada and Opportunity Village.
