Tim Cook traveled through Salt Lake City on Wednesday, visiting an LGBTQ + resource center, meeting with developers from Utah’s tech community and stopping by to visit Apple City Creek Center employees.
During his trip, Cook passed through Encircle, a Salt Lake City-based LGBTQ + resource center. Encircle serves the LGBTQ + community in Utah and the surrounding states.
In addition to Cook, the event was attended by Governor Spencer J. Cox, America’s First Family Executive Director Abby Palmer Cox, and the owners of Utah Jazz. Surround notes that event guests donated $ 4 million toward Encircle’s goal of $ 8 million, which will be used to open eight new centers in four states.
Cook also visited Apple City Creek Center in the morning to spend time with customers and team members.
He also visited with some of the Utah developers, yelling at the Red Games Company, known for working on titles like “Lego Brawls,” exclusive to Apple Arcade, and Ancestry, the world’s largest genealogy company.
In June, the CEO visited Los Angeles-based youth outreach organization Create Now, an arts-focused nonprofit now supported by the tech giant.
