Join Us for this Spectacular Community Event
In memory of Sam's love for life and the kindness he shared with himself, his friends, teammates and family, this night focuses on celebrating each other and our amazing community. Enjoy an evening of incredible food, craft drinks, music, great company and dancing while supporting Live Like Sam's initiatives to help our youth succeed in life and sport by continuing to provide them with the tools, education and scholarships that foster a strong sense of self, identity, purpose and community.
The evening will begin with decadent local cuisine, craft cocktails and live music. Throughout the event, silent auction items will be up for bid and a live auction featuring luxury vacations, fine art, exquisite jewelry and more will add a measure of excitement to the night's bidding!
To end the evening, the Flying Ace All-Stars will perform a re-creation of their high-flying tribute to Sam.
On this 6th anniversary of Sam's Celebration of Life, we invite you to join us for an unforgettable evening honoring Sam's legacy of kindness and positivity.

But what really separated Sam from many wasn't his athletic accomplishments, it was his character, the way he treated others and showed up for himself.Chris "Hatch" Haslock, Director, Freeski Division Park City Ski & Snowboard
