Klytia Dutton, owner of DISHgrace Party Rentals in Graeagle, is proud to be celebrating the business’s 10th anniversary. Over the years, Klytia says she has expanded her selection and in-house offerings, as well as partnering with several local vendors to bring a “beautiful selection of party rentals to our area.” In 2013, she said, they provided rentals for 67 events, mostly weddings, and helped entertain some 5,868 guests.
Klytia adds that they will continue to contribute 10 percent to local community nonprofits for fundraisers and events “because we love the people and places that make our community home.” Last year she started a sister company to meet the coordinating, planning and event management services needs of the area.
