It is a travesty what the IOC has done to women's ski jumpers across the world, denying them a shot at Olympic glory after fighting for so long (and then throwing in skiercross the first chance they had). Women's Ski Jumping USA is hosting a benefit event to raise more money for their legal battles and to replace the funding lost when USSA basically cut them out of future funding because they weren't going to Vancouver.
6:30 - 9:30 p.m. August 19, 2009
Please join former Salt Lake City Mayor and President of Women's Ski Jumping USA Deedee Corradini for an extraordinary evening to celebrate and support these athletes at the exclusive Huntsman Estate located at 5000 Royal Street, Park City.

More about the event
Ski jumping is the only event in the Winter Olympics that does not allow women to compete.
The exclusion of women ski jumpers has developed into a global fight for human rights and equality
for women in sport.
The U.S. women’s team recently lost all of its funding in budget cuts. This important benefit celebrates these strong and talented young women who are now fighting to keep their program alive.
The 20,000 square-foot grand mountain home of the Jon Huntsman Sr. family boasts one of the largest private collections of Native American rugs. This $55 million estate also is home to Jon Huntsman’s favorite classic cars.
“Western Chic” is the theme for the evening, as you will experience the finest in
Park City’s Western-style gourmet and cocktails by Done to Your Taste Catering.
A silent auction features Park City items & memorabilia signed by Olympic stars and professional athletes. Email us if you'd like to donate an item for the auction.
Music is provided by former U.S. alpine downhiller & current recording artist Bryon Friedman.
