Elizabeth Smart Gilmour to Speak at Peace House Benefit

Submitted by Peace House

Peace House is hosting its annual summer gala on Tuesday, Aug.13 at Louland Falls at 6:30 p.m. The picturesque venue, with its backdrop of red rock spires and cascading waterfalls in Parleys Canyon, inspired the theme for this year’s fundraiser, Peaceful Easy Evening.

Guests at the gala will enjoy a savory array of appetizers, followed by a gourmet dinner, accompanied by live music from local favorite Jeff Proctor and complemented by a wine tasting experience hosted by Fox School of Wine.

Highlighting the evening will be remarks from kidnapping survivor and children’s advocate, Elizabeth Smart Gilmour. Gilmour is a speaker, ABC News contributor and founder of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to preventing crimes against children.

In addition to raising critically needed funds to support Peace House, this year’s gala is also an opportunity for Peace House to honor two of its most steadfast supporters – Park City Mayor Dana Williams and longtime Park City Luxury Home Tour Chairperson Sandra Vogt.

One hundred percent of all proceeds from tickets sales and donations from Peaceful Easy Evening will directly benefit Peace House thanks to the generosity of premier event sponsor Francie Mortenson, and presenting sponsors Louland Falls and Fox School of Wine.

Space is limited for this year’s event at Louland Falls, therefore advance-purchase tickets are strongly recommended. Tickets may be purchased by calling 435-658-4739 or online at http://www.peacehouse.org. Tickets are $200 per person or $1,800 for a table for 10.
