High West and Park City Foundation celebrate milestones
November 20, 2009
On the eve of opening to the public, the High West Distillery hosted a reception honoring the donors, volunteers and staff of the Park City Foundation, Utah’s first community foundation.
"High West is pleased to be able to host Utah’s first community foundation for this special celebration," said David Perkins, High West Distillery founder and owner.
"This reception is really a ‘thank you’ for all those that have supported us in our first two years," said Trisha Worthington, PCF executive director. "In particular, we are recognizing our Save Our Snow volunteers and supporters, donor advisors (individuals and families who hold donor directed funds with PCF), Community Pass supporters and partners (representatives from participating local ski resorts and golf clubs), our board members, Community Fund supporters and others."
"In our first two years, the Park City Foundation has granted more than $500,000 to the community and launched the Save Our Snow initiative," said Worthington. "This could not have been possible without the support of local businesses, donors, volunteers and nonprofits. We’re so thankful to the community for embracing our efforts, and High West, a fabulous addition to Old Town, is the perfect place to celebrate our success and thank our supporters."
The distillery was slated to host a grand opening Friday at its renovated 100-year-old livery stable on Park Avenue near the Town Lift. The site is listed on the National Historic Register and when fully open High West will have a full-service restaurant and bar next to a traditional 250-gallon copper pot still.
