The event brings out the talents of many of the members, and the end result is magical for both the elves (er, league members) and the public as well. Tickets will be available at the door. Admission is $6.00 for adults; children 5 and under are free. The WCLC, organized in 1948, prides itself on its local impact, with 100% of the Christmas House proceeds benefiting local non-profit organizations and projects in Laramie County. “{The league} is dedicated to improving the community of Cheyenne and Laramie County through scholarships, direct grants and service projects. We are proud to have granted, financed or supported the requests of over 200 different organizations and special events in and around Cheyenne as well as helping to improve the quality of life of countless individuals. Over $1 million has been returned to our community in a variety of ways from projects as diverse as conservation projects and city park development, to education scholarships for young people and non-traditional women students returning to school, to support for the homeless, to name just a very few,” the league shares via their website, womenscivicleaguecheyenne.org.
