Utah Foundation will hold its Annual Luncheon and 75th Anniversary Celebration on Sept. 17 at the Grand America in Salt Lake City, as well as online for those who prefer to connect remotely. The event will run from noon to 1:30. This year's luncheon will be an action-packed event featuring the next governor of Utah, honoring one of the state's great civic leaders, and hearing from an enlightening speaker.
* Gubernatorial candidates Spencer Cox and Chris Peterson will speak. They will address Utah's top priorities for the coming years.
* Philanthropist Gail Miller will be honored with the 2020 Utah Foundation Insight Award.

Join us in hearing Mr. Ojomo's insights on creating and nurturing social mobility.
