Meet the Guys:

Adam Levy, Founder
Adam is an Event Management professional with expertise in developing relationships, communicating requirements and goals, and managing projects, programs and events. His experience includes more than six years as the Event and Sponsorship Director of an annual sporting event called Ultimate Chicago Sandblast which was presented this year by Chipotle Mexican Grill. The event is attended by more than 750 player participants and sponsor partners including Chipotle, Coca-Cola and Goose Island. Adam’s fundraising experience began three years ago with this event by establishing a program that allowed the participants to raise awareness and funds the Windy City Habitat for Humanity. In 2009, Sandblast and their player participants raised more than $8,000 for the organization. From an event management perspective, Adam hired, trained and managed a staff of ten and volunteer committee of more than 30. In 2009, he was approached by his event partner, Eric Bolf, to support his efforts for the fifth annual Bolf-A-Palooza event which was attended by more than 200 young Chicago professionals, included a silent auction with more than $13k in donated products and services, and raised almost $4,000 for our charitable partner, Imerman Angels. Imerman Angels is a federally registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing one-on-one cancer support: connecting cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. Outside of these two events, Adam has spent the past 13 years as a marketing IT professional after graduating from Miami University (OH) and is an active member of my Kappa Sigma national fraternity. He enjoys recreational ultimate frisbee leagues and events and picks up a golf club or racquet every once in a while. Adam is blessed with a five-year old daughter, Alexandria, who has given my life an entirely new perspective and focus on enjoying every moment of every day.
