JUNE 1, 2021—GILLETTE, WYOMING--Sixteen Campbell County community nonprofits invite the community to a Block Party at 5 pm on Wednesday, July 14 to help raise money for WyoGives. The nonprofits have a goal to raise $20,000 during the event to be split equally among them. A match of $5,000 has already been pledged by Kissack Water and Oil. Every nonprofit has their own goal to reach the day of the event; please contact them for more information.
The Block Party takes place at the Big Lost Meadery and Brewery parking lot at 105 Warren Avenue. Local country music performer Kellen Smith provides entertainment from 5-7 pm; those interested in the performance are encouraged to bring a chair. Entrance is free, but donations to nonprofits participating in WyoGives are encouraged. Food will be available to purchase from Ranch & Roost, which offers delicious, high quality smash burgers, fried chicken sandos, fresh cut fries and loaded tots. Big Lost and Ranch & Roost have pledged to give 10% of sales from that evening to the nonprofits for WyoGives.
WyoGives, an initiative of the Wyoming Nonprofit Network, is designed to bring the state together as one community to raise money and awareness for Wyoming’s nonprofits virtually at wyogives.org. This is the second year this online fundraising day has been hosted in the state. The event is held on GiveGab, an online fundraising platform where individuals can search and donate to nonprofits across the state. The platform also allows smaller nonprofits a chance to fundraise alongside more well-known organizations, broadening their reach to a larger audience to help raise more money.
Thanks to GiveGab, each nonprofit that participates in WyoGives can create a separate and customizable web page for secure donations the day of the event. Donors can also choose to cover the money processing fee of their contributions in the platform. GiveGab provides the Wyoming Nonprofit Network a way to thoroughly vet the charities that participate to ensure donations go to worthwhile causes and good stewards of funds.
Campbell County nonprofits participating in the WyoGives Block Party include:
Created in November 2011, the Fur Kids Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides education and aid to promote the well-being of animals in Campbell County.
