On Friday, March 17, the Central Wyoming College Foundation had the Rustler 400; an annual event that includes buffet, silent auction and a drawing for a multitude of prizes.
Becky Ruthenbeck, Executive Director of the CWC Foundation said the evening was a success.
“Two-hundred-and-fifty people came to the event itself. We sold 329 tickets, and 18 people left with cash prizes.”
In total, $40,422 was raised to benefit athletic scholarships at CWC.
This is about a $4,000 increase from last year, so the event is progressively getting bigger and raising more money. ”
