Winter is almost here! OK, not quite, but Fall IS coming and that means that our valued sponsors, Black Diamond and Uinta Brewing Company are hosting the 16th Annual Fall Fundraiser Party in the Black Diamond parking lot. This party has become famous as the best party of fall.
When? Thursday September 17, beginning at 6pm and going until we get shut down.
Where? Black Diamond 3900 South, 2084 East in Salt Lake City
They will again feature Mexican food, Uinta beverages, a silent auction, live music, real forecasters, and around 1000 people that you may or may not recognize in shorts. Good news/bad news for this year: tickets are available on line (http://www.mountaingear.com/blackdiamond/) and no dogs will be allowed at the party. Sorry about that. They will also be sell locally made recycled cotton UAC logo t-shirts at the party - bring a little extra cash and grab one. Also check out the list of our corporate sponsors (link to sponsor page) and support the local businesses that suppport the avalanche center.
This is the biggest fundraiser of the year and all the proceeds directly benefit avalanche forecasting and avalanche education in Utah.
The U.S. Forest Service, Utah State Parks, Utah Public Safety, and Salt Lake County pay for most of our base funding, but private donations pay for the good stuff like the website,the very popular, Know Before You go Program,the observer program, Are You Beeping signs, Level 1 and Level 2 classes public service announcements, billboards, brochures and much more.
