Join the Entrada Institute, Utah’s Colorado Plateau arts and culture organization, at 6:30 on Saturday, October, 22, 2011, for a fundraising celebration with great food, live music, a theatrical reading, and a live auction.

Entrada supports the creation of new works of art relating to the Colorado Plateau, a summer series of arts and cultural events in Torrey, Utah, and sponsors scholarships for students at Wayne High School in Utah’s Wayne County.

This year’s fundraising evening will feature Debora Threedy’s new one-act play, Underground, which was inspired by the 2009 FBI artifact raid in Blanding, Utah.  This innovative play explores archaeology, greed, and taking responsibility for unintended consequences. Plus, Entrada’s Ward Roylance Award will be presented to this year’s winner.

The festivities are only $10 per person and held at the Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorum at Westminster College at 1840 South 1300 East in Salt Lake City. The celebration is casual dress and open to all lovers of Utah’s red rock country.

In these uncertain economic times, many non-profit organizations are struggling to stay afloat. Others have shuttered their doors or significantly cut back staff and programming. Entrada is a very lean organization, run by a working board. So far we have been fortunate enough to continue offering our three major programs: Please help us by contributing.
Our Scholarship Program for Wayne County High provides much-needed financial support for graduating students who wish to pursue a college education—this includes our new Bernice Scholl Memorial Scholarship fund.
Our Saturday Series of readings, concerts, slideshows, lectures, and other events enrich the cultural life of Wayne County while providing artists, humanities scholars and earth scientists to share their new and existing works.
Our Artist in Residence helps support the creation of new works in the Wayne County environs, while providing a housing and meals stipend and an opportunity for the artist to describe his or her experience.

Contributions are tax-deductible. Entrada is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
