Middle Teton Sponsors
Snake River Brewing: At Snake River Brewing, the concept was to create a restaurant and brewing space that was open to their customers, to draw guests into the process of making beer. They wanted a simple and unpretentious neighborhood watering hole for locals to gather and Jackson Hole tourists to taste beer from the Great State of Wyoming. From the beginning they were determined to create a brewpub building that was both excellent in style architecturally and offered excellent food and beer. They felt strongly about the quality of workmanship in the restaurant, from its beautiful windows and ceiling to its mahogany curved bar.
They decided to plan for quality, substance and longevity. They knew that Jackson Hole’s citizens would judge us on the quality of our beers and food. Our mission statement became- “The world doesn’t need another beer, but a better beer!”
Snow King Sponsors

City Kids: Since 1996, City Kids has been serving under-resourced youth from DC’s most vulnerable communities.

City Kids provides low-income DC youth with life changing opportunities to help them learn, grow, and build the skills they need to set goals and work towards their dreams.
City Kids currently operates school year and summer programs for 130 under-resourced DC youth, enrolling new youth in the sixth grade and providing program support through middle school and high school. Their program is based around three core principles: long-term youth engagement, experiential education programming with a focus on overcoming challenges, and goal setting with a focus on future planning.
Their programs exist to position participants for success in adulthood by getting them off to the right start as youth. Their goals include that their youth graduate from high school or earn their GED, that they enroll in a postsecondary education program or obtain a job, and that they are involved and connected members of their community.
