100 Days Of Arts Goal Met

Laramie, Wy – The 100 Days of Arts campaign exceeded its fundraising goal this week. The Wyoming Arts Council needed to raise 100-thousand dollars as matching money to receive 100-thousand from the legislature. And the campaign to do that went over the edge last weekend with a fundraiser in Denver. 100 Days of Arts Coordinator Sonya Chung-Hirano thinks the success shows how much individual Wyomingites care about the arts.
Chung-Hirano says the benefits will be almost immediate because this money doubles the Arts Council grants budget. She also was proud to note that donations came from all 23 Wyoming counties.
