Santa Johnny, aka John Dilday is coming to town and he’s dropping off $10,000 to help support our “local, sit down restaurants.” John is an RHS alumni with the Class of '73 and his donation is on behalf of the RHS All Class Reunion that will be held at the Riverton Country Club on July 17 & 18. Santa Johnny will be coming to Riverton Friday night for the cruise, be sure to watch for him!
Johnny called me last weekend and after a bit of brainstorming this is how we decided to spend Santa’s generous donation. We will be running the donation’s through the RHS All Class Reunion. In addition to Santa Johnny’s donation, other organizations have stepped to the plate:
Riverton Ranger- prepared & printed the $20 Wally Bucks & PSA
First Interstate Bank- $1,250
Wyoming Community Bank- $1,000
Wind River Development Group- $1,000
IDEA, Inc.- $1,500
Johnny G, KCWC 88.1- PSA’s
County 10- PSA
Ernie Over, Wind River Radio- PSA’s
We now have $14,750 that will be distributed to the local restaurants!. The Ranger printed $20 Wally Bucks that will be sold for $10 to consumers at two locations during the Friday Night Cruise; local Veteran’s, in full uniform will be selling in front of the downtown Post Office and Riverton Medical District will be selling at the Java Java parking lot. Folks should be able to easily slip off the “main drag” at each of these locations to make their purchases. They can select which restaurant they would like to purchase Wally Bucks from and there are limited Wally Bucks for each participating restaurant, first come, first serve. CASH ONLY, no checks or credit cards!
The funds raised selling the Wally Bucks will be donated to 3 non-profit organizations in Riverton:
Local Veteran’s Hall
Riverton Medical District
It’s a win-win for Riverton; $14,750 going to local restaurant’s, the consumer gets 50% discount to eat out at their favorite restaurants and three non-profit organizations receive money for their respective organizations!
Please come out Friday night, with “cash” in hand and help support your hometown!
“Thank you” all for your generous support to this cause!
Julie Buller, Santa’s #1 Elf!
