From the very first show, the purpose has been all about community, small communities are the best at sticking together and making things happen. While people enjoy the drawings and prizes throughout the whole day, the biggest winner can be the volunteer fire department through our donation to them at the end of the show- help us make it another great year and buy a raffle ticket! Last year, the proceeds provided the Escalante emergency vehicles with much needed light bars.
The 2017 show had a special feature from Ruris (the non-profit org hosting the show) two large table were full of hardback, paperback, fiction, non-fiction books all free to the guests. Families filled boxes, home schooling parents and avid readers added to their libraries. Thanks to the Salt Lake City Library where the books began their journey to Escalante homes and schools.
