Trifecta Summer Concert Series: Saliva Sisters

Join Eagle Environmental Inc at Pierpont Place this summer for the Trifecta Summer Concert Series.  The first of these unique and socially-distanced events will feature Salt Lake's own Saliva Sisters on the 10th.

We will be supporting local musicians, local small businesses, and local charities, while giving you an opportunity to safely enjoy a night out on the town!

Reserve your “exclusive and all-inclusive” lounge for groups of 4-10 people to eat, drink, and dance to a live concert by a local band. Each lounge is safely distanced from other lounge groups, so that we can all be separate… while celebrating together!

These intimate events have strictly limited and separated seating. Each private VIP lounge is limited to a specific group size.  Lounge sizes vary from 4-10 people. Lounges are each safely distanced from other groups and from the band, and include comfortable lounge seating for your group.

Every VIP Lounge Package includes:

  • 2 Top-Shelf Drinks per person*
  • Personal Cocktail Waitress (so you don’t need to leave your lounge except for the restroom)
  • An antipasto/crudité platter*
  • Hand Sanitizer

*Additional drinks and snacks can be pre-ordered when ordering tickets and will also be available for sale from your cocktail server.

United Way's Stuff the Bus

This summer will look a little different than usual, but there is still one constant event that even now, our community can rally around, United Way of Salt Lake’s Stuff the Bus! For the event’s 10th edition, it is our goal to provide 10,000 students with school supplies for the new year and 3,000 elementary-age students with new backpacks. 

Although we have suspended in-person volunteer events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to host a virtual Stuff the Bus event on August 1st.  We will be hosting virtual drives as we feel it is the safest way to continue our 10th year of Stuff the Bus, while reducing the spread of Covid-19 and keeping all of our volunteers, participants, and students safe. To make this a reality, we need your help with our virtual supply drive!  

You can host a virtual drive to collect online monetary donations that will go toward purchasing supplies. Register your virtual drive online and our Volunteer Engagement Team will reach out to you with marketing materials, best practices, and everything you need to make your drive a success. If you have any questions, please reach out to the volunteer team at volunteer@uw.org.
