Posted: Thursday, December 29, 2011
The Greater Des Moines Partnership is pleased to be sponsoring both the University of Iowa and Iowa State University in pre-game celebrations at their respective bowl games. The Partnership is excited to sponsor these events to showcase just a glimpse of not only Des Moines’ economic and workforce development, but to also highlight our vibrant social and cultural scene.
On Thursday, December 29, prior to the Insight Bowl, a Hawkeye Huddle will be hosted by the University of Iowa Alumni Association and the National I-Club at the Phoenix Convention Center. The event includes cash refreshments and concessions and features special guest speakers, Herky, the Hawkeye Marching Band, and the Iowa Spirit Squad. The event will be December 29, from 6-9 p.m. MST. The Greater Des Moines Partnership is proud to be a sponsor of the Huddle to promote the Greater Des Moines region and encourage past residents to think of relocating back to the area.
