Thank you for your support of the
52nd Annual Christmas House
Merry and Bright!
Thanks to the efforts of our creative and dauntless Chairwomen, Kelly Dalton and Heather Dodson, and all of our hard-working members and volunteers,
the 2020 Christmas House was an unqualified success!
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 and GFWC Community Service Programs.
