Thank You for Your Support
Friday - November 5th, 2021
Our local day of giving and celebration, Live PC Give PC's 24-hours of online community giving is the perfect way to recognize and support the incredible nonprofits that help shape Park City into the amazing town it is!
Sam Jackenthal was a U.S. Junior National Champion, an internationally ranked freestyle skier, and a world champion inline rollerblader. More importantly, he was a generous, fun-loving individual with a great sense of community, purpose, character, and self-identity. While our Park City community lost Sam at age 16 to a training accident in Australia in 2015, his legacy of inclusivity, humility, gratitude, and positivity still thrives long after his passing.
Thank you for your support raising $54,760 in 2020; this year with the release of our new two-pronged approach to programming outlined below, we aim to raise $75K from 300 unique donors.
