You hear about our “Party With A Purpose,” but if you haven’t been to a Thankful Thursday event, Lemme 'splain. It's helping local charities while having a good time with great people and maybe winning some extra cash.

"It almost seems impossible to avoid hitting pay dirt."

On entry, you get a free numbered wristband and when we call your number you choose 1 of 80 bottles, that each has a prize. Tonight, 5 of those bottles contain $1,000, 13 have $500. There are $100 prizes and more. I won’t even mention the thousands of dollars you can win later.

You can win cash tonight with the 50/50 split game. You can win $130 in the card game and you can win a cash prize if you correctly guess the weight of a pumpkin grown at St. Christopher's Church right here in Cheyenne.

"With all of these ways to win money, you may want to drive an armored car to Amvets Post 10, 3839 E. Lincolnway."

You may want to spend some of your winnings on tonight’s Wyoming 2-1-1 auction items that include: 2 passes for Jackson Hole Ski Resort, an iPad, a hot air balloon ride with champagne, great date night deals at local restaurants and more great things to bid on.

Oh, and bring an appetite, you can get delicious Godfathers Pizza for a small donation.

All monies go to help St. Christopher's Church and Wyoming 2-1-1, a Laramie County health and human services program for those in need of assistance with a wide range of issues, They are a big part of our safety net and well deserving of our support. Jane, Alf & I talked about all of this on the air.
