The Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation is rolling up the red carpet and watering down the extreme tubing slide for next month’s “Anti-Gala,” an interactive alternative to the ubiquitous dinner and auction variety fundraiser patrons of most non-profits have come to expect.

This evening event Thursday, July 14 offers guests the opportunity to play at the Utah Olympic Park from dusk until the stars come out with proceeds benefitting year- round sports training, competitions, and youth, adult, and community programs. Black tie and heels are not allowed.

“Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation is very excited to host our friends and community for an outdoor evening of fun,” said Colin Hilton, President and CEO, Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation.

“As Utah’s Olympic Legacy grows, it is critical that we involve the community in our fundraising efforts. We look forward to sharing the Legacy Foundation’s plans for the future, as we continue to emphasize the importance and impact of sports and recreation in everyday life.”

The Anti-Gala evening features unlimited access to Utah Olympic Park’s most popular adventure activities including extreme tubing, extreme zip line and alpine slide. Salt Lake City-based cover band, Rage Against the Supremes, is the opening; and the evening’s main act, Changing Lanes Band, promises to deliver their signature high-energy style and infectious summer sound

The dining experience features delectable treats from the talented culinary team at Riverhorse on Main. General admission is $100 per person and available online and in person at Utah Olympic Park. (After July 10, tickets are $125 based on availability.) Special Fire Pit Packages are available for purchase for $2000, including admission for 10 with reserved seating, a private fire pit, and Riverhorse on Main S’mores Basket.
