Dear Friends,

It’s finally here! Love Utah, Give Utah’s once annual day of giving.

Join us for the 20th Pre-Season Celebration. There will be food and refreshments for everyone to enjoy around the fireplace between 1PM and 8:30PM. Prizes will be given every hour!

Local youth kick things off with a musical ensemble at 4pm!

Music will play throughout the afternoon and evening including:
• Don Gomes (and Friends)
• Rough Around the Edges
• The Mooney Wash Boys

Today, we can join together to shape the future of Utah, of the Entrada Institute and the lives of residents and visitors to the Colorado Plateau.

Please go to and join in this once annual day of giving.

We’ll have computers to register donations online  so others can track the progress toward our goal. You can also choose to drop your donation in the traditional “hat pass” while enjoying music and entertainment throughout the evening.

Our goal is to raise $12,500 in just one day! But, we know that with supporters like you behind us, that goal is perfectly attainable. If we meet this goal, we will receive an additional $2,500 in matching grant funds for a total of $15,000 raised in just one day!

These donations will be used by the Entrada Institute to open the door for people from diverse backgrounds to come together to celebrate the music, art, natural history and traditions of the Colorado Plateau.
