Guests of Recycle Utah’s 2022 100 Mile Meal fundraiser will just have to drive all the way to Oakley to enjoy an evening of live music, lawn games and a five-course dinner prepared by the chefs of the Park City Mountain Resort.
Tickets for the event, scheduled for Saturday, August 6 and for adults 21 and older, are available now at recycleutah.org.
“Registration is open right now, but it’s selling out pretty quickly,” said Addison Marr, director of communications and development for Recycle Utah.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception at 5:00 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m., according to Marr.
“Thanks to an Epic Promise grant from Vail and sponsorship from Gallery MAR, we are able to get their chefs to donate their time to put on this unique event,” she said. “The meal will be determined based on what ingredients we can acquire, but all food will come from within a 100-mile radius of Recycle Utah’s recycling center.”
Recycle Utah works with Tagge’s Farm, based in Perry, and 3 Springs Land & Livestock in Oakley, which uses regenerative agriculture, a system focused on regenerating topsoil and biodiversity.
“The chefs come up with the base of the meal and they adapt to what we can get,” Marr said. “Without these local farmers, none of this could happen.”
Even drinks are provided by Alpine Distilling and Red Rock Brewery, both in Park City.
“It’s a very local and sustainable event, and it’s about eating seasonally at the Utah food shed,” Marr said. “Living every day in the most sustainable way possible is something we truly support at Recycle Utah.”
The 100 Mile Meal, which Recycle Utah presents each year, is also the nonprofit’s biggest fundraiser of the year, according to Marr.
Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Recycle Utah operations and programs, she said.
Although the location of the event is revealed upon registration, anyone interested in taking a private bus from the recycling center to the venue and back should email Marr [email protected].
Finally, the 100 Mile Meal is not a black tie event, Marr said.
“It’s what we call ‘Cowboy Boot Casual,'” she said. “So people can come comfortably and enjoy an evening playing games, dining and fundraising.”
