ARTini—A New Year’s Fundraising Extravaganza
Thursday, Dec. 31
Come out for a charity twofer— support the arts and raise money for human rights at the ARTini fund-raiser. The event benefits High Road for Human Rights, a local nonprofit started by former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson. The evening will feature a charity art auction featuring local Utah artists as well as signed posters by Peter Max and even a signed Salvador Dali piece. An evening of music, food, drink, merriment and valet parking will cost $50, but proceeds go to a good cause.
Recycle Your Electronics
Saturday, Jan. 2
In our high-tech world, it’s a wonder how many different gizmos are available. It’s also a crying shame how dangerous and polluting all the old electronics can be when they end up in the landfill. With many electronics packed with lead, cadmium, beryllium and other toxic substances, e-waste is much harder to recycle. But it can be done! Just drop off your old electronics at this city collection center and let Salt Lake City take it from there.
