UW Nordic Ski Team ‘Trash 2 Treasure’ Fundraiser Aug. 29

August 19, 2015

The University of Wyoming’s Nordic ski team’s annual “Trash 2 Treasure” fundraiser is Saturday, Aug. 29, at 8 am. on Fraternity/Sorority Row.

The sale will offer quality furniture and appliances for incoming and returning students, plus others, looking to furnish their homes, apartments or residence halls at an affordable cost. Team members have collected furniture throughout the summer.

“Furniture is expected to sell fast so attendees are recommended to come early in the day,” says Meghan Kent, UW Nordic ski team secretary. “Anything remaining after 1 p.m. will automatically be reduced to 50 percent off.”

Community members interested in donating furniture or appliances to the sale can bring their items to Fraternity/Sorority Row Friday, Aug. 28, between 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

The “Trash 2 Treasure” program was founded by UW’s Nordic team as a way to reduce unnecessary waste at the Laramie landfill, and to provide quality items for sale.

All proceeds help fund the team’s travels, which have included international travels in past years. The UW team has represented the United States at the World University Games in Turkey, Italy and Slovakia.

For more information, contact Kent at (307) 760-6010.
