42nd Giant in Our City to honor Katharine and Robert Garff

Utah’s business community’s highest honor recognizes the Garff family’s contributions and positive impact throughout Utah

The Salt Lake Chamber will honor Katharine and the late Robert Garff with the 42nd Giant in Our City award next Thursday. The award honors those who have provided exceptional and distinguished service and achieved extraordinary professional achievement and is widely recognized as the most prestigious business award given in Utah.  

The event will recognize the Garffs’ exceptional and distinguished service in the state and will celebrate Robert’s life, accomplishments, and commitment to the community.

Additionally, the Chamber will also honor Utah’s heroic essential workers with the 3rd annual Lane Beattie Utah Community Builder Award. The award traditionally recognizes an inspirational individual who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to address critical community needs. Given the unique challenges of the past year, Utah’s essential workers were the clear selection, including the following organizations and individuals who will accept the award on behalf of all:

  • Marvella Cuch, bus operator, Utah Transit Authority
