Save The Date – Outsiders Ball is coming to Denver July 22, 2018

Join us for the 6th annual Outsiders Ball on Night “0” of Outdoor Retailer Summer Market.  This event is a Summer Market favorite and a great way to elevate your brand as one that cares about the single most important issue in our industry – connecting young people with the outdoors. More info to come!

In the meantime, if you’re interested in seeing more kids outside, we’d love to partner with you this summer. Contact Ryan Lauer for more information about sponsorship opportunities.

Reaching the Next Generation

The most pressing issue facing our industry is the growing divide between young people and the outdoors, an issue that is connected to childhood obesity, environmental apathy, and the overall decline in outdoor engagement. Through the annual Outsiders Ball, the Outdoor Foundation is uniting industry leaders to inspire the next generation to get outside.

2018 Outsiders Ball: Help Connect Kids to the Outdoors

In the past four years, Outsiders Ball has raised over $1 million to fund more than 300 community-led outdoor initiatives, providing 65,000 youths with opportunities to experience the outdoors. That’s real, tangible change on a local level.

On July 22, the eve of Outdoor Retailer, we’re doing it all again. Join more than 1,000 outdoor industry leaders at the McNichols Building in Denver as we enjoy good food and drinks, celebrate the outdoors, and equip young people with the tools and opportunities to get outside.

Take 1 minute and 28 seconds out of your day to see what we’re all about:
