    Thanks to your generous support of the 2016 Christmas for Kids fundraiser, the Jordan Education Foundation and

    South Jordan Chamber raised over $12,000 to help provide needed clothing and gifts for Jordan District students. 

    Students in need were met by Police, Fire, Military and other volunteers at Gordmans Saturday December 19th for this second annual event.  The community response and support was overwhelming.  Volunteers had to be turned away because there were so many. 

    A big shout out goes to the Christmas for Kids organizing committee headed up by Bryan Synan from Gordmans and Steven Hall from the Jordan Education Foundation. 

    We also want to recognize Stonehaven Dental that coordinated a contest between their two locations that helped bring in hundreds of dollars.

    The inaugural Taste of South Jordan event started out soggy with rain but that didn't stop the crowds from showing up to try the cuisines offered by several restaurants.  About 450 residents showed up to enjoy the night of entertainment and delicious food. 

    Nine restaurants showcased some of their most popular food items to the delight of those who attended.  Many offered praise and gratitude for such a great event. 

    We thank the sponsors, restaurants, vendors, and volunteers who came out to make this event possible.
