Park City is gearing up for the annual Live PC Give PC event on Friday, November 8, 2019. The 24-hour fundraising smorgasbord supports more than 100 local nonprofits in Summit County. Last year’s Live PC Give PC raised in excess of $2.4 million through donations from thousands of Utahns in support of issues important to them.
Live PC Give PC 2019 aims to mobilize at least 5,000 unique donors to give whatever they can to help strengthen their community through charitable acts. 2018’s average gift size was $231, but individual donations ranged from just a few dollars to impressively sizable sums. Katie Wright, Executive Director of the Park City Community Foundation stresses it’s the spirit of involvement and community giving that’s important. “It’s about participating, giving what you can—no matter what amount—and seeking opportunities to help spread awareness about causes you feel passionate about supporting,” she says.
That call to action should resonate in Park City, where people are rarely shy about issues they hold near and dear. Support affordable housing efforts by giving to Mountainlands Community Housing Trust, adaptive sports initiatives through the National Ability Center, open lands protection with the Summit Land Conservancy or animal welfare along with Nuzzles & Co. Head to the Live PC Give PC website to see a full list of participating organizations.
To participate Live PC Give PC, visit livepcgivepc.org and choose the cause important to you. You can donate any time during the actual 24-hour giving marathon between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on November 8 or any time in advance of the event that’s convenient.
Since 2011, Live PC Give PC has raised $10.3 million to support the community. That’s a cause for celebration, so you should do exactly that. The public party honoring this year’s donors will be hosted by High West Distillery and Saloon. It starts at 8:00 p.m. and features live music along with High West’s famous food and drinks until midnight. Help build the community you want to live in. Support your favorite causes, share in the efforts with your friends and celebrate as the donations are tallied.
