Description

Welcome to the Vendor & Sponsor Registration for the 6th Annual Utah Pacific Island Heritage Month held Saturday July 28, 2018 behind Sorenson Unity & Recreation Center at 1383 S 900 W from 5p-10p. Govenor Herbert declared August as Utah's Pacific Island Heritage Month in 2012. Please join us in celebrating ALL the Utah Pacific Island communities—Micronesians, Melanesians, and Polynesians—and the positive contributions to the fabric of Utah’s vast diversity as a Sponsor, Retail, and/or Community Vendor, and for sure as a participant.

In 2017 we had well over 1500 people attend this fun, educational, Community Event. With the generous donation from the Granite Education Foundation, we will be giving out backpacks with school supplies at the Kick Off after visitng the Culture Booth and participating in the activites of each. In 2017 we gave out 400. Backpacks. IN 2018 we look forward to the Cultural Booths expanding to include additional Pacific Island Communities in Utah. Pohnpeian, Fijian, Hawaiian, Maori, Marshallese, Tahiti, Samoan, and Tongan will all be onsite.

There are so many initiatives and social issues that will be highlighted at this year’s events. The resources and education being provided will help us promote community engagement between neighbors so we can find commonalities that erase stereotypes, making Utah a better place to live and work. We celebrate all Utahans’ proud ethnic foundations and our shared desire to build and strengthen all family members for complete, inclusive community health.

Thank you for your participation in years past. We hope you will continue to help us build alliances and bridge communities with your continued support. The deadline for Sponsor and Vendor applications is close of business on May 15, 2018.

If you have any suggestions, ideas on how we can do a better job reaching the goals of your organization or program, please let the Utah Pacific Island Heritage Month committe know, and/or any questions, please contact me at susi@pik2ar.info.

Thank you for your commitment to making ALL of our communities better for everyone!
