  Not to get too political, but is this for the Rainbow Family 
Gathering?  (First thought based on location/duration.)

  I haven't dealt with Blaze, but depending on your event's tax status 
(NPO/charity?), you might be able to get some help from local-ish 
business.  I know some of the ISPs in the Salt Lake valley have been 
known to do some pro bono work; I'm not sure about Utah County.  (Google 
Fiber in Provo springs to mind, but I don't imagine there's any way you 
could get a signal down Provo Canyon or over the mountains.)

  Otherwise, Zach's suggestion aside, I'd see whether any businesses in 
Heber proper might be able to lend/sublet you bandwidth, and look into 
point-to-point wireless.
