Over 40 events organizers from around Jackson Hole sought funding from the area’s lodging tax money through applications filed with the Joint Powers Travel and Tourism Board in June.  Yesterday, the answer came to 24 of those events as Board Chairman Stephen Price says $228,900 was awarded to those events deemed best suited to attract destination visitors to Teton County during the shoulder and winter seasons.  Price says the applicants were all pre-screened by a Special Events Advisory Committee to help streamline the process of sorting through many excellent projects. The money granted to the organizations is intended to help organizers boost their marketing plans for their respective events in order to attract a wider audience. Then, grant recipients have to submit a report about their event once it is completed, providing an accounting of its results.
