Athletes on the top-ranked U.S. women's ski-jumping team will hold their annual fund-raising dinner July 13 at the Utah Olympic Park near Park City.

Tickets and information are available online at wsjusa.com or by calling 801-656-7101.

The event begins at 6 p.m., and will include gourmet food, drink, live and silent auctions of luxurious items and trips, and acoustic entertainment. Athletes are trying to raise $100,000 to help pay for training, travel, equipment and coaching for the World Cup competition season.

Members of the team — based in Park City — will jump off the K120 hill at the Olympic Park to give guests a closer look at what they do. They will compete at the Olympics for the first time at the 2014 Sochi Games in Russia.
