The volunteers make this organization what it is,” said Tiffany Hayes, vice president of the CFD Volunteer Crisis Fund, in a news release.

We are fortunate to have a rodeo program in the heart of true cowboy country. Thanks to the support of the southeastern Wyoming community, the Golden Eagles Rodeo Team is a meaningful part of Cheyenne's rich western culture as well as a vital component of LCCC collegiate athletics program. Proceeds from this auction directly benefit LCCC student rodeo athletes throughout the year. Some examples of the ways in which the money raised from Lariats -n- Lace include:

  • Training materials, tools, and maintenance
  • Safety equipment
  • Academic scholarships for rodeo team members
  • Team travel expenses to and from competitions
  • Service projects in the community

The LCCC rodeo team trains, works, studies, and prepares tirelessly to ensure a high level of standards and expectations for themselves as individuals, as well as in the entirety of the team. Inside the arena, inside the classroom, and out in the community they are some of the best that LCCC and the sport of rodeo has to offer.  We hope you'll show them some support by bidding on these amazing auction items!

4) “Jurassic Bark!” The Cheyenne Animal Shelter’s 18th Annual Fur Ball!

On the evening of April 23, 2022, from 5:00pm to 10:00pm we invite you to join us at Little America and enjoy a “dino-mite” evening of fun and fundraising to help the animals at the shelter. Pile into the Explorer Vehicle with your fellow animal lovers and take a tour of our live and silent auctions without the worry you’ll be eaten by a T-Rex! However, you may receive a lot of puppy kisses!

The Fur Ball is Cheyenne’s premier pet-friendly gala, which raises money in support of the animals and programs at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter. This year's event is being sponsored by Charles Schwab. Items will be available for bidding throughout the week with new items added daily.

The funds raised from this Gala allow the animal shelter to maintain critical programs to care for and protect homeless and unwanted animals in our community, ensure that all animals adopted from the shelter are spayed or neutered, investigates animal cruelty and neglect and provides funding for low-cost spay/neutering through their Big Fix program.

For over 50 years, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter has extended the hand of kindness to neglected and abused companion animals in Cheyenne and Laramie County. Today, they are involved in an ever-expanding effort to accomplish a mission that goes beyond sheltering the homeless and unwanted pet population. Their goal is to find a home for every adoptable companion animal brought to their door.
