On the Six-Pack Saturday Historic Pub Crawl, Utah Heritage Foundation tells the history of beer in Utah and takes you into six of Utah’s most well-known watering holes.

The mining and railroad boom brought immigrants to Utah from around the world. With them they brought their well-established drinking habits. Rather than lose money to outsiders by importing beer, the first “buy local” movement was initiated by these men with a knack for brewing beer

2013 Hope Benefit @ La Caille

The Hope Benefit is organized by the Friends of the Senior Charity Care Foundation for the purpose of supporting charity care for seniors in care settings who cannot afford the total cost of their care and/or services. The Senior Charity Care Foundation uses the proceeds of the Hope Benefit to improve the quality of life for our seniors in care facilities by fulfilling unmet essential needs.

Each year the Friends select a Continuum of Caring Award recipient who has demonstrated strong support for the senior population. The Friends of the Foundation selected Sonnie Yudell, program manager at the Utah Division of Aging and Adult Services, to receive the 2013 Continuum of Caring Award. Her dedicated work in aging, including being a founding member of the Utah Coalition for Caregiver Support, has helped shape the scope of aging in Utah.

In keeping with the mission of the WRC the goal of the evening is to Retain, Educate, and Graduate Self Sufficient Women.

The theme of the fundraiser is connected directed to the mission of the center. The theme What Changes the World Starts Here: Educating Women, Educating Utah includes an awareness campaign of the discrepancies between men and women’s pay. As shown in a local news article headline, Utah’s wage gap for women is the third largest in U.S. Wages for Utah women remain considerably lower than for men, which is costing families throughout the state thousands of dollars each year. Women in Utah are paid 69 cents for every dollar paid to men which amounting to a yearly gap of $14,446. And with nearly 85,500 Utah households led by women, the new data show that these gaps harm families.

Tickets are offered at $60 per person and will be available at the door or online at
