Well, it has been a crazy month! As soon as the silent auction was over, the volunteer team at Benefit El Salvador started collaborating with The Front Climbing Club in Salt Lake City for our next event: a rock climbing competition! With a little less than a month to plan, our team raced to action!
The Front administered the competition with the proceeds going toward our fundraising goal of $10,000!
We had a great turn-out of rock climbers eager to try all of the new routes - approximately 80 competitors!
In addition to funds raised for entering the comp, BES volunteers were grillin' in the parking lot to keep all of the competitors and spectators nice and full for a donation of $5!
Gorilla Bars (an all natural snack-bar company) came out to support our cause and brought free samples for everyone to try!
- Check out their website HERE to sign up for a FREE full size sample! (Trust us, they're delicious!)
Overall, the Climbing Competition was a great event with lots of fun all for a great cause!
- Pictures from our partner Caption Photography will be posted soon!
