Please join us for the 7th Annual Oktoberfest. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to benefit the People’s Health Clinic in Park City. There will be live music, great German food, bounce houses for the younger guests, beer, wine, and a silent auction. This is a wonderful event for the whole family.
Invitations are now available for a very unique fundraising gala supporting Camp Hobé. Martin Doors Showroom in South Salt Lake will be the site of a silent auction, culinary experience, live auction and special program on Saturday, September 12, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Held in conjunction with Childhood Cancer Awareness month, the event will be hosted by the Martin Doors Showroom, 2828 South 900 West and will showcase the culinary creations of several local restaurants.
The silent and live auction will feature an amazing number of items, including sporting equipment, gift certificates, get-away packages, specialty gift baskets and much more!
The event is black tie optional. Tickets may be purchased upon invitation only and are $50 per person, which will include food and beverages. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Camp Hobé, a two-week summer camp for children with cancer and their siblings. Each year, the camp serves almost 250 children from the Intermountain West at the Elks’ Camp Wapiti in Tooele. This camp provides a valuable respite from the challenges of cancer treatment. Camp Hobé lets these kids have fun participating in activities, such as swimming, crafts, theater, and campfire events, all under the supervision of medical staff and trained volunteers.
