To whom it may concern,

It is my great pleasure to recommend Mr. Michael Housefield to you or anyone who is searching for outstanding entertainment, leadership and complete facilitation of any event, small or large. His extreme dedication, efforts, knowledge and personality can without a doubt ensure an event that you and your guests will never forget!

As the Executive Area Director for Best Buddies Tampa Bay, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), we have called upon Michael to lead and facilitate many of our events including our annual Best Buddies Tampa Bay Friendship Walk. His passion for our mission along with sincere determination, made this year the most successful Friendship Walk to date. Making sure that pre event logistics were carefully planned, meeting with myself, staff and walk committee ensured a flawless facilitation. His event day energy, personality and charm, made the over 1,000 attendees have the most amazing time, as they truly wanted to be a part of the event, participating, dancing and also understanding the pure reason of this event, our mission. This could not have been conveyed to and received by over one thousand people without the true professionalism and expertise of our emcee, Michael Housefield. Post event follow up was as consistent, making sure all details were complete and always wanting to assure complete satisfaction in every aspect.

 Because of his commitment to making sure every event is absolutely perfect, his ability to know and feel the crowd, create an atmosphere of energy, fun, participation, and especially to our mission, Michael is and has been a crowd favorite for Best Buddies Tampa Bay. His presence is requested at all of our events by parents, teachers, staff, and board members and most importantly, all of our special needs participants.

Michael passion and dedication has resulted in him becoming a member of the Best Buddies family. So much, that he was nominated by our Advisory Board as well as several individuals to represent Best Buddies as a “Champion of the Year” candidate for our annual fall gala, a coveted nomination for those who truly champion the mission of friendship, leadership, inclusion…exactly what Michael has represented for our organization. 

For all of these reasons, I believe Michael Housefield is the most dedicated, passionate, professional and absolute number one choice when it comes to selecting an emcee, DJ or overall leader of your event.
