Bootlegger’s Bash Raises Over $20,000


SWEETWATER COUNTY — At the Sweetwater Events Complex Foundation Board meeting on Tuesday, February 27 the board announced at its first event, the Bootlegger’s Bash, that they raised $22,653.00. Bootlegger’s Bash Committee Chair Janet Hartford said, “We are extremely excited with the amount of money that was raised, it exceeded our goal!”

The Bootlegger’s Bash was a fun night of sampling wines, spirits and food pairings along with a little entertainment while raising funds for the Foundation. Hartford explained, “The committee was overwhelmingly pleased with the evening! We had so many people come up and tell me “What a great idea… we are having such a good time!”

All proceeds from the event will be going towards the Foundations efforts to improve the facility and would like to see an additional space for birthdays, weddings, company parties, and gathering areas during larger events such as National High School Finals Rodeo and Wyoming’s Big Show®.
