Health & Human Services, Paws & Claws Benefit & Welcome to Winter Kickoff & Dance Party


It’s getting to be that time of the year when legislators start checking their list of government services that have been naughty and nice to see which ones will have a happy new year in 2011. To get a taste of that process, stop by the Health & Human Services interim meeting. Later, you can attend a Holiday Gift Bazaar to benefit retired research animals or, for the snow enthusiasts, there’s an arts performance at an Alta-based community-arts nonprofit.

Health & Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee
Thursday, Nov. 18

If there’s one thing the government doesn’t like to pay for, it’s human services. That said, if you receive government services and/or are human, you may want to check in on this meeting, which will feature a budget review, an audit of numerous county health programs, a pain medication study, a report from the Children’s Health Insurance Program about at-risk clients, a discussion on preventing Medicaid fraud and much more.
Utah Capitol, 350 N. State, Room 210, Senate Building, Nov. 18, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Paws & Claws Benefit
Thursday, Nov. 18

Every dog has its day—or, at least, it should, especially if the dog was previously a research animal. Those animals often depend on kind-hearted folks to support programs to place them in loving homes. You can help support their placement by shopping at the Paws & Claws holiday bazaar, which will feature artisan crafts, a bake sale, a raffle and a lineup of current animals up for adoption.
Eccles Institute of Human Genetics, University of Utah, 15 N. 2030 East, 801-554-5304, Nov. 18, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

The Alta Community Enrichment nonprofit is welcoming snow with its annual gallery and dance party. Support the organization’s community-arts outreach and education efforts by enjoying the works of local photographers and cinematographers paying homage to the area’s beautiful snow. The event will feature a winter-themed BYOB dance party immediately following the presentation.
Our Lady of the Snows, 10189 E. Highway 210, 801-742-9712, Alta, Nov. 18, 6:30-11 p.m.,
