During an impact auction, funds were raised for a renovation to the Club’s Teen Center, career readiness and mental health awareness and prevention programs. Those bidding in the impact auction were entered to win a 2023 Toyota 4Runner. The winning bidder was Cassie Kirkwood, who generously donated the 4Runner back to the Club to be auctioned off as a fundraiser. Another high-point of the evening was the Reverse Raffle drawing for $5,000. The golden ticket winner was Cathy Strube, who generously donated the money back to the Club. Her son accepted the prize on stage on her behalf.
“This was a game-changing evening in our 53 year history of impacting the lives of youth in Central Wyoming,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming CEO, Ashley Bright. “In addition to auctioning one-of-a-kind items, trips, and experiences, we’re excited for our Teen Center renovation, career readiness and mental health awareness and prevention programs. Through the renovation and these programs, we will provide youth with the social-emotional support and vocational training necessary for them to be successful in life.”
