Cancer Rehab Fundraiser
Cancer. It sucks. But you can make a difference at Cancer Aid, an annual fundraiser for the Cancer Rehabilitation Centers and Heal Courageously. Last year's funds were enough to start scholarships for cancer patients in Utah. The monies raised at the event helped to cover the costs of specialized exercise and physical therapy, as well as tai chi, yoga and educational classes at The Hope Lodge. There will be a brunch menu from Rye Restaurant with entertainment from local artists. Delete Blood Cancer (DKMS), will be onsite with DNA matching for the bone marrow registry. Pierpont Place, 163 W. Pierpont Ave., 801-891-1995, Thursday, July 14, 6-9 p.m., $35 per person, reserved seating and VIP seating also available, CancerAid2016.EventBrite.com

Meet The Candidate Barbecue
If you're concerned about the problems of hunger and poverty in our community, then you may want to make sure you're voting for people who support those issues. Join Crossroads Urban Center, its clients, volunteers, supporters and friends at the Meet the Candidates Barbecue where you can talk to elected officials and candidates about their priorities and strategies. Liberty Park, 600 E. 900 South, 801-364-7765 Ext. 107, Wednesday, July 13, 5:30-7:30 p.m., free, open to public

Candidate Training Workshop
Equality Utah wants you! Or more to the point—they want you to run for office and win. Equality's Harvey Milk Leadership Academy will present a three-day Candidate Training Workshop that will include how to develop a campaign plan, build a personal narrative, write a stump speech, get out the vote and build a fundraising list while learning the fundamentals of paid media and direct mail.

    We certainly don't want our hunters hassled, especially in the rain, and that is good reason to loosen Utah's already liberal gun laws.
