For those who have not been to the site in a while, here’s the deal: We at Ignite Cheyenne wanted to give back to the community, so after the first Ignite Cheyenne, we thought we should help out a local charity. We asked attendees (and other people we are connected with on facebook) and they provided us some charities that they are fond of in the area. We put this to the test (via a poll on our website) and got input from all of you who are planning to come to Ignite Cheyenne 2. We’ve collected all of your responses and a charity has been picked.
Thank you all for voting, and if your favorite charity was not picked, we are planning on doing this at future Ignites, so you need not worry. We are rotating charities, so a charity may only win 1 time per year. Our supported charity this month is:
If you are unfamiliar with the group, you can check out their facebook page. Here’s a snippet of their mission:
The purpose of the LightsOn! Group is to get lights on in vacant buildings in downtown Cheyenne by letting the arts lead the way in establishing a new economic anchor in Cheyenne based in education with programs located in empty buildings. The group believes that education + arts + empty buildings = new vitality in downtown Cheyenne.
After speaking with the LightsOn! Group, they let us know that they would take donations in the form of cash or check, or arrangements can be made for credit cards. A person from LightsOn! will be around to talk a bit about the organization before the talks start, so if you’re looking for more info, you can get it there!
Remember, anything that we can do (and follow through with) will make a positive difference in our community. No amount is too small!
