Review for CONNECT Summit County, Park City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For such a new organization just begun in early 2016, I have been to impressed with the speed, commitment, knowledge, expertise, and passion that CONNECT Summit County has mustered in such a short time. They are championing an issue whose time has come, and they are doing a great job of bringing together everyone in the community with a stake and an interest. I expect that we will see great things from them in the coming years, and that their efforts will touch many lives.

Review for THE HOPE ALLIANCE, Park City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our teen-aged daughter went on a Hope Alliance-organized service trip to a rural Haitian orphanage last year, and it was endlessly eye-opening and illuminating for her. She worked and saved beforehand to buy and assemble 50 sewing kits for local women there. Not only do the residents have no money to make purchases, but there are no stores or supplies available to buy in the rural areas. Thanks to Hope Alliance for organizing this type of service trip for teens, she came back with a much bigger understanding of the world, and the part she can play in making it a kinder, gentler place. Hope Alliance doesn't just do acts of good work in areas that need it most, they also transform their volunteers into committed, life-long, go-gooders. And I think that's pretty incredible.

Review for Clague Playhouse Inc, Westlake, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been very impressed by every experience I have had with Clague Playhouse. The productions are high quality and entertaining. The Jewelry Heist fundraiser was fabulous. And all the volunteers and patrons I have met have been the nicest, friendliest people. It's wonderful to see a little organization filled with such positive, passionate people bringing fun and good things into the world. I urge you to support with your patronage and donations not just the big, famous causes, but to also take a look at the tiny little groups working together in the little neighborhoods to make a difference.

Review for Park City Performing Arts Foundation, DBA Park City Institute, Park City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The commitment that I, along with my husband and our business, have made to this organization over the past two years has been sizable. My life has been tremendously enriched by all of the experiences I have had because of Park City Performing Arts Foundation, and I can only imagine the positive impact on the thousands of my fellow citizens as well... who have been sitting alongside me in wonder and thoughtfulness and awe at the amazing TEDxParkCity and Curiosities (to which I am hopelessly smitten and addicted) and all the inspiring performances at the Eccles Center and Deer Valley. I have been introduced to things that have expanded my mind and heart and consciousness. I believe in the power of live performance and live interaction to change the world, and to lead people in positive and productive directions. It's more than just entertainment. It's the illumination that is magical. I urge you to participate, to donate and to connect with all of the ideas in all their forms that spring from this one organization. It's really remarkable.

Review for Park City Performing Arts Foundation, DBA Park City Institute, Park City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with the PCPAF in many capacities for many years. As a patron of the arts, I have attended and enjoyed so many excellent arts events they have put on I can't even count them all. Our town would not be the place it is without the opportunities that this organization provides to see, feel and experience such exceptionally high quality performing arts programs. As a active community member, I have attended numerous fundraising events sponsored by PCPAF which have been thoroughly uplifting to me as a person. The Curiosities events are wondrous, and I heartily look forward to seeing where PCPAF's vision and gumption take them in building these curated events and "The Big Idea." Most recently as an in-kind donor, I have had the pleasure to work closely with the PCPAF team on branding and launching the Mega-Genius Supply Store & IQ HQ. This team not only works wonders at conjuring up so much from nothing, but they are smart-cookie strategic thinkers too. All in all, this is a rave review. As for constructive criticism, I wish they were able to have more frequent performances, events and gatherings so that I could soak up more inspiration.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The Staff has been unerringly polite, considerate, kind, I can't say enough good things. They seem to be good-humored and kind-hearted to the core. Very impressed.
