AIT-SLC Support Utah Food Bank by Sponsoring Two Autumn Events
The co-workers at AIT-Salt Lake City demonstrated their commitment to the mission of the Utah Food Bank by participating in two recent fundraising events to benefit the non-profit organization.
The Drive for a Drive Golf Tournament was hosted by one of AIT-SLC's customer at the South Mountain Golf Course in September with all profits going to the Utah Food Bank. AIT's sponsorship included presence at the 8th hole during the event. To add some excitement and build interest, the team set up a hole-in-one challenge and offered a Harley-Davidson motorcycle as the grand prize. There was even a custom-branded AIT motorcycle helmet to complement the two-wheeler.
Four AIT-SLC co-workers also showed their support by golfing in the tournament. "It was a beautiful day for golf," said Branch Owner Don Beck. "We had great fall weather, we were able to conduct a little business prospecting and we supported a great cause in the Utah Food Bank."
In October, the SLC station offered support for another event that benefited the Utah Food Bank. This time, it was the Evermore Pumpkin Fest, billed as "Utah's Most Elaborate Halloween Experience". AIT-SLC was a sponsor of the weeklong festivities held at the end of the month with daily haunted walks, illusionists, a fortune teller, a wandering minstrel band, a pumpkin carving contest and even live performances from American Idol contestants.
