Old Bill’s Donations Due Today

For those who waited until the last minute to donate to their favorite charity through Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities, today marks that time. Community Foundation Special Events and Marketing Officer Nicki McDermott says donations must be in hand at the Foundation office by 5:00 tonight in order qualify for the matching funds. McDermott says people can go by the office or go online to oldbills.org and give to as many organizations as they choose with a single check or credit card transaction, and those donations will be matched Mr. & Mrs. Old Bill and the co-challengers.  McDermott says it is not unusual for donations to be made in the last few days of the annual fund-raising event.  She says the Foundation receives about 60% of the annual contributions the week after Old Bills, and she says it appears this year is no different.  McDermott says the money raised will be distributed at the awards party on October 21st, and she adds it will be at that time that the community will know exactly what this year’s matching amount will be for those donations and whether the event has achieved the benchmark of having raised $100-million over its 17-year existence.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
