Since it’s debut in 1990, our Denim & Diamonds gala has been one of the “must attend” community events and has raised more than $5 million for major projects across the Cheyenne Regional health system! The Foundation team works with Cheyenne Regional leaders to identify needs that can be met through this annual fundraising effort. Though we took a year off from the normal gala in 2017, we still identified a project & contributed more than $270 thousand to support the new Wyoming PACE Center through our annual campaign. In 2018, Denim & Diamonds made a roaring comeback! The chart below shows how, over the life of this gala, the generous individual and corporate donors have made a huge difference! Thank you to all who have supported this amazing event!
