Christmas House Proceeds
Christmas House has been the annual fund-raising project of GFWC Women’s Civic League of Cheyenne (WCLC) for the last 50 years. WCLC is a non-profit organization, and Christmas House proceeds benefit local organizations and projects in Laramie County, Wyoming. There are few projects in the community that have not benefited from the hard work, dedication and generosity of the members of GFWC Women's Civic League of Cheyenne.
Each year the majority of the money raised through Christmas House is distributed through the club’s Community Grant Committee process. Proceeds from the 2018 Christmas House were awarded as follows:
Community Action = $12,500
