The Solomon Fund gears up to gear up Latinx youth sports with fundraising event

PARK CITY, Utah — The Solomon Fund held its annual fundraiser, or ‘friendraiser,’ as it felt to many of the 120 attendees, for more than half of whom it was their first time, and likely not their last.

The event, hosted by Vail EpicPromise, was held on Tuesday, August 29, at the Legacy Lodge at Park City Mountain. Guests mingled while enjoying heavy appetizers. Park City-casual dress code was worn by all as they got the opportunity to learn how the nonprofit is working with local organizations to increase access to sports and recreation for local Latinx youth.

They heard from stakeholders and participants as to what the benefits can be for the children, and were invited to envision a more complete, inclusive community.

Beano Solomon, founder of the Fund, told TownLift, “It was so nice to see our staunchest supporters as well as all the people who were there to learn more about us.”

The Solomon Fund is celebrating seven years of existence and grant-making totaling nearly one million dollars for scholarships and gear, “thanks to the generosity of folks in Summit County,” Diego Zegarra told TownLift.

Zegarra is the Vice President of Equity and Impact for the Park City Community Foundation (PCCF), the umbrella entity under which the Solomon Fund operates. He continued, “Vail EpicPromise has thoughtfully partnered with us and so many other local nonprofits – we’re so grateful for their support as well as their commitment to the community. They continue to be good neighbors and have been instrumental in helping us raise funds that can further increase access to all activities our town has to offer.”

It’s not too late to donate, here.
