2nd Annual WyoGives Kicks Off Wednesday
More than 50 Laramie County nonprofits will participate in this year's WyoGives event, a 24-hour day of online giving that kicks off at 12:01 a.m. next Wednesday, July 14.
Now in its second year, WyoGives helped 33 Laramie County nonprofits raise tens of thousands of dollars last year.
"We were blown away by the response to and generosity generated by last year's WyoGives Day, despite it being a first-year event and the extra challenges created by the pandemic," said Britney Tennant, Executive Director of Black Dog Animal Rescue and Board Chair of the Wyoming Nonprofit Network.
"This year's county-wide collaboration shows the best of the nonprofit sector and demonstrates the truth of the idea that we all do better when we can work together," Tennant added. "I'm certain our community will rise to the occasion and accept this invitation to support so many great organizations doing the critical work of providing for the health, safety, vibrancy, and protection of our community."
To help kick off this year's event, Laramie County nonprofits will also be hosting a Coffee, Cooler and Confectionary Crawl on Wednesday, July 14.
Nonprofit representatives will be stationed at Dazbog North, Paramount Café, Beach Please, the Library Café, Hawthorne Tree, Cold Stone Creamery, Wyo Snow Co., Mary’s Mountain Cookies, Mort’s Bagels, the Railyard Coffee Haus and Eatery, Alf's Pub and 2 Doors Down to share about their organization and what WyoGives means to them.
The businesses have also generously agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds directly to Laramie County nonprofits.
