Utah Avalanche Center Fundraising Party

On Thursday, September 17, 2009, Black Diamond and Uinta Brewing will be hosting the 16th Annual Utah Avalanche Center Fundraising Party.

As you know, the Utah Avalanche Center is responsible for providing daily avalanche advisories for the Wasatch Front. Federal funding cuts force the Center to run on a season-by-season basis, and fortunately the Center has been able to operate for the past fourteen years due to the positive community response by backcountry users and local and national businesses. I am asking your business to be a part of this and help insure that the Center can operate for the upcoming season.
This annual fundraiser has become the party of the fall in Salt Lake City. It’s a time when backcountry users get together after a long, hot summer and look forward to winter. Last year we had 800 people attend, so your support gets noticed by the majority of the Utah backcountry community.
Contributions of either product or services for both the silent auction and raffle for the fundraiser would be appreciated. If you are interested in supporting this event, please fill out the attached form and either email it or fax it to me by August 28th. If I can get your donation by August 31st, that would be helpful.
In advance, thanks for your support of the Utah Avalanche Center.
