Park City Lodging, Inc. Supports Community-wide Day of Giving
PARK CITY – Park City Lodging, Inc. showed its support today by donating to seven local non-profit organizations for the first annual Live PC Give PC Day fundraiser – an unprecedented 24 hours of giving presented by The Park City Foundation, Utah’s first community foundation that serves donors and non-profit organizations throughout Summit County.
“Giving back to our community is one of the most important things we can do as a local business in Park City,” said Rhonda Sideris, president of Park City Lodging, Inc. “It’s our local non-profits that bring so much life, opportunity and activity to our town and it’s our responsibility as residents to show our support.”
Of the 80 organizations participating in the Live PC Give PC fundraiser, Park City Lodging, Inc. supported an array of causes and chose to donate to the following: Summit Land Conservancy; Supporting our Veterans/Healing Our Heroes, a project of the National Ability Center; Peace House; Women’s Ski Jumping; Utah Avalanche Center; Summit Community Gardens; and Park City Conservation Association, dba Recycle Utah.
“One thing that makes Park City so special is the number of non-profits in our community who truly strive – and do – make a difference,” said Jaci Buckingham, Sales and Marketing Manager at Park City Lodging, Inc. “Without our non-profits we wouldn’t have the many things that make Park City, Park City, such as our numerous and ever-growing biking and hiking trails, free concerts in the summer, our farmers markets and support for community arts programs.”
Live PC Give PC Day will function as a 24-hour fundraising competition between the non-profits. Every donation made gives an organization the chance to win matching grants and prizes. The Park City Foundation is also awarding grants to the three organizations with the most unique donors, as well as randomly choosing donors to add $500 to their donation.

“It’s events like these that continue to bring together Summit County and strengthen the Park City community,” Sideris said. “Watching the community come together to support our non-profits and work toward a common goal makes me proud as a Summit County resident and a Park City business owner.”
