Annual UW Alumni Association Scholarship Reception and Auction Set April 15 in Casper

March 30, 2016

The University of Wyoming Alumni Association (UWAA) 24th Annual Scholarship Reception and Auction, presented by Infinity Power and Controls, is slated for 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, at the Casper Petroleum Club. Proceeds from the evening will fund UW student scholarships awarded by the Alumni Association.

The support of Scholarship Club members and auction attendees allows the UWAA to provide four-year scholarships and single-year awards to more than 100 deserving students with a commitment of more than $170,000 annually. The UWAA has awarded more than $2 million in scholarships since 1980, and the program continues to grow. Scholarships valued at $1,500 per year are awarded to Wyoming, out-of-state, resident, undergraduate and graduate students. New awards have been added to support more Wyoming community college transfer students, veterans and multicultural students.

The cost to attend the event is $20/single and $35/couple. The price includes admission, heavy appetizers and two complimentary beverage tickets. The silent and premium auction will consist of trips, paintings and artwork, UW gear and much more.

Additional highlights include a raffle of a “Talk About Your Cowboy” bronze sculpture valued at $3,500, recognition of the UWAA scholarship recipients, a UWAA update and a welcome from UW-Casper. Dress attire for the event will be cowboy casual.

UW alumni and friends interested in attending or sponsoring the event can register online at or call the Alumni Association at (307) 766-4166. Auction items are available to preview through the registration link.
