CWC raffle to benefit Foundation
The Central Wyoming College Foundation is hoping to raise money for scholarships this summer by raffling off a classic 1964 T-Bird Landau Coupe.
The car, donated by CWC supporters Ken and Darlene Hostetter, is Chantilly beige, with a power driver's seat, power windows, a 390 V-8 engine and a swing-away steering column. It has been displayed at car shows in Jackson and Thermopolis, and it will appear July 19-21 at the Rocky Mountain Car and Bike Show. Organizers said they also anticipate showings in Lander and at other local events.
Proceeds from the $20 raffle tickets will go to CWC's general scholarship fund. Tickets are available at the CWC Foundation office, 2725 W. Main St. directly across from the college, and at participating summer car shows. They also may be purchased online at cwc.edu/what/cwcfoundation.
The winner of the raffle will be announced Oct. 10 during the foundation's annual Oktoberfest event at the Riverton Holiday Inn. For more information, call 855-2254.
