PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Mountain hosted over 75 nonprofit leaders from over 20 local organizations for a day on the slopes and a reception on Feb. 14 to recognize their contributions to the community.

The event, hosted at the National Ability Center’s McGrath Mountain Center, honored the nonprofits’ work in providing accessible childcare, affordable housing, food security, diversity, equity and inclusion.

“We are here today to celebrate all of you and the important work that you do,” said Deirdra Walsh, Park City Mountain vice president and chief operating officer. “Our EpicPromise grants enable the vital work that you do. Not only do you work to ensure that our community is whole, but you think about the people who don’t have a voice in the room. You represent the needs of our population today and in the future — and it’s your vision, it is your hard work, it is your dedication that make me so incredibly proud to be a member of this community.”
