Fall Fundraiser Was A Briny Success

15 October 2018 Published in News & Events

Thank you to the attendees, sponsors, and participants of FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake's Fall Fundraiser, "Protection Through Partnerships." 

The evening was a briny success, featuring craft cocktails from Dented Brick Distillery, beer from RedRock Brewery, and dinner from Culinary Crafts.

This year's featured partner, Chris Cline of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services – Utah Field Office, offered a timely update of essential Great Salt Lake research. 

Anna Hansen of The Hex Press was on site printing tea towels and shirts with our custom FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake logo design. Our silent auction featured local goods and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. 

Thank you to our generous donors and thank you for recommitting yourselves to preserving and protecting Great Salt Lake.

Why We Care

  • We should bill the lake for what it is—a place of grandeur and solitude, which nourishes our thoughts and heightens our sensitivity to nature. Seen in that light, the brine flies become a fascinating curiosity more than an annoyance. The Great Salt Lake offers a wilderness experience, not a beach party, and no amount of promotion and development will change that.
