Why “The Gauntlet”?
The Gauntlet is the result of Journeymen’s vision for an authentic annual fundraising event that blows the whole “formal gala” thing out of the water. In case you haven’t noticed, neckties and tuxedos aren’t really our thing…
The Gauntlet represents the Hero’s Journey – it is both an individual adventure and a timeless story on the treacherous path to greatness. By combining the ancient technology of Rites of Passage with our modern style and some good ole’ fashioned community celebration, this event will leave you feeling engaged, connected and empowered.
Journeymen Institute is a 501c3 non-profit with the mission to build compassionate, inspired, and resilient young men through nature-based rites of passage, ongoing mentorship, and community engagement.
