Benefit for Sherpas

 They scaled Mount Everest last month as part of the SuperSherpas
Expedition and now Apa Sherpa and Lhakpa Gelu Sherpa are trying to
raise money to help the Sherpa community in Nepal.

The "Go to New Heights" benefit is set for June 20, 6 p.m., at the
Fort Douglas Commander's House on the University of Utah campus.

Tickets are $100 per person, with proceeds going toward
publication of the book, "The SuperSherpas: Our Story." Funds from
the sale of that book will benefit educational programs back in Nepal.

The event includes dinner and an auction of items used during the
all-Sherpa team's summit of the world's tallest mountain.

For tickets, call 801-585-9786 or go to
