CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Super Bowl parties are filled with food, fun, and, of course, football. But for the second year in a row, the Cedar Rapids Titans threw a party, not just for the game, but to also help the Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity. The two groups teamed up to host one of many Home Team Huddle events across Eastern Iowa on Sunday.

The event was at 33rd Ave Sports Bar & Grill in the Cedar Rapids Clarion Hotel, but people could also host their own event at their homes.

"We encourage people to have Super Bowl parties, and at those parties, the host will encourage the people attending to donate to Habitat for Humanity," Don Taylor, the Outreach and Education Coordinator for the Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity said.

The money donated goes to the local chapter to help build and repair homes.

"It's an opportunity for us to give back to our community. The Cedar Rapids community has been fantastic in supporting the team, and we are always looking for projects and things that we can get involved in. Obviously Habitat for Humanity is far above most things we can do," Mark Stoute, Head Coach for the Cedar Rapids Titans, said.

The event also provides fans an opportunity to come and meet players in a relaxed atmosphere. Before kickoff, players and coaches signed autographs, took pictures and mingled with fans and guests.

"We’re also trying to get our name out there, get it out the community because we are a fairly new team. We want to show people we are personable, and that people can come talk to us, get to know us and hopefully that will bring them to the game,” Anthony Silvers, a member of the Cedar Rapids Titans team, said.

The Titans will have their first preseason game on February 7. For more information on their schedule, visit: www.cedarrapidstitans.com
