Christmas House has been the annual fundraising project of Women’s Civic League for the last 54 years. WCLC is a non-profit organization and Christmas House proceeds benefit local organizations and projects in Laramie County, Wyoming. There are few non-profit organizations in the community that have not benefited from the hard work, dedication, and generosity of our members.
Each year the majority of the money raised through Christmas House is distributed through the club’s Community Grant Committee process and our Community Service Program Committees.
Grants paid from the proceeds of Christmas House 2021 include, but were not limited to:
Cheyenne Botanic Gardens - Women’s Civic League Peace Garden Refurbishment, $25,000

Support Our Students - annual Adopt-a-Child Christmas event, $3,387.40

Additionally, scholarships were awarded to Laramie County high school seniors.
