Temple Square Hospitality Helps VOAUT

Volunteers of America, Utah (VOAUT) held their first annual Silver Spurs Gala at Gardner Village in West Jordan this September and we had the amazing opportunity to provide all the beautiful decorations.

Some of our wonderful staff members here at Temple Square Hospitality Corporation (TSHC), located in The Joseph Smith Memorial Building, donated linens, chargers, containers for centerpieces and of course, their time and wonderful talents.

We were excited to be a part of such a wonderful event and we’re completely honored to be featured in VOAUT’s newsletter, “The Spirit Within” (featured below).

We feel very strongly that companies should support community events which make a positive difference in people’s lives. This is how we can give a little something back. This is how we can stay united.
