Brewvies Cinema Pub to host benefit for fallen skiing legend, Jamie Pierre

Words, Kyler Kooley:

Earlier this season one of skiing's greats was lost in an avalanche in the Wasatch. Jamie Pierre died November 2011 in a tragic accident that shocked the ski industry. He was one of skiing's innovators, a friend to many skiers around the world, and was an all around great person as well. His loss continues to be felt around the world and his legacy will live forever.

I invite you to show your support for this great skier and his family February 23rd at Brewvies in downtown Salt Lake City. Brewvies [a popular theatre/bar/restaurant] will host two ski movies, along with an afterparty which will include prizes, a raffle, an auction, and big fun. The shows begin at 7pm with Poor Boyz Production’s The Grand Bizzare, followed by Teton Gravity Research’s One for the Road. The movies will be followed by a DJ performance in the bar area and you're all welcome to enjoy food and drinks while watching the flicks.

Tickets will be a recommended $5 donation (proceeds benefitting Pierre's family via the Jamie Pierre Memorial Fund, and also the Utah Avalanche Center) with $5 raffle tickets on sale as well. If you can’t afford the ticket, come anyways and give what you can. There will be plenty of giveaways and raffle prizes to go around. Mark your calendar and please share the news about the event with your friends.
