Memphis Habitat Asks Football Fans to Host HOME TEAM HUDDLE Parties Feb. 7

Habitat Asks Football Fans to Host HOME TEAM HUDDLE Parties Feb. 7

Hosts, guests eligible to win a getaway to an NFL city next season

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis invites the community to “huddle up” for its 12th annual HOME TEAM HUDDLE fundraising event on Sunday, Feb. 7, during professional football’s biggest game of the year.

HOME TEAM HUDDLE participants are asked to host fundraising parties and collect donations for Memphis Habitat during halftime. Individual party hosts and guests will become eligible for HOME TEAM HUDDLE’s grand prize getaway for two. This getaway includes two tickets to the NFL regular season game of the winner’s choice, a two-night Homewood Suites by Hilton stay from Hilton Worldwide and airfare.

Proceeds from HOME TEAM HUDDLE go directly to Memphis Habitat to help the organization empower local residents to build strength, stability and self-reliance through housing.

“For many people, the big game is about more than football; it’s about gathering together with family and friends, often in someone’s home,” said Dwayne Spencer, president & CEO of Memphis Habitat. “This year, we encourage Memphians to continue that tradition and host parties that will help more Memphis-area families build or improve places they can call home. Plus, all guests and hosts are eligible to win the grand prize trip!”

HOME TEAM HUDDLE parties can also be hosted in businesses, schools or houses of worship in the week leading up to the game.

“It’s a great opportunity for team-building and fellowship and can be as simple as a potluck lunch or a ‘spirit day’ where employees make a donation so they can wear jeans or their favorite teams’ gear,” Spencer said. “With HOME TEAM HUDDLE, it’s easy for anyone to get in the game for Habitat.”

Party hosts who sign up by noon Thursday, Feb. 4 can receive a HOME TEAM Party Pack to help promote and encourage participation during the parties. The pack includes a HOME TEAM HUDDLE T-shirt, a collection envelope and supplies for hosts to help build excitement around their parties. Those who are unable to host a party but want to contribute can also donate online at
