Jon GlassmeyerNashville Grizzlies RFC
While Jon Glassmeyer's day job is a project manager for IT at Asurion, he has been instrumental in starting, growing, maintaining, and elevating the Nashville Grizzlies. While the Grizzlies have always played an important role in the LGBT community, two of their last accomplishments have taken them from a sports outlet to a community organization with economic impact.
The Grizzlies were awarded their 501c3 status. Most recently, with much hard work from Jon and others, Nashville was awarded the 2016 Bingham Cup. The Bingham Cup will bring in rugby teams from all over the world and give Nashville its first global opportunity to showcase its dynamic LGBT community and thriving LGBT-owned and LGBT-friendly businesses.
In its 8th year, the tournament is named after Mark Kendall Bingham, a member of the San Francisco gay rugby union team who died on United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. It’s believed Mark was one of the passengers who overpowered the hijackers on-board, preventing the aircraft from reaching the hijackers' intended target. The Bingham Cup challenges stereotypes and perceptions of gay men and is open to all players, regardless of background, sexual orientation or ethnicity.
The Nashville LGBT Chamber thinks many of our members will find the Bingham Cup to be a great fit for their business. Whether it is sponsorship, outreach, employee engagement, health & wellness, or entertainment; participation in the Bingham Cup is a great way to tell the world that your business is LGBT-friendly.
