Kari’s Access Awards Benefits from T-shirt Partnership

 Kari’s Access Awards, a local non-profit that assists students with opportunities for personal development through non-traditional scholarships, was the beneficiary of the proceeds from a WY Cowboys t-shirt sale. The shirt was made in collaboration with WyoRadio, a local network of radio stations, and Western Wyoming Beverages. They have been sold at Marty’s Gastro Pub on Elk Street.

“Thank you to these local businesses for contributing to Kari’s Access Awards which will provide additional non-traditional scholarships to our local students.”                                                                                                             - Larry Fusselman, Founder

Local Non-profits Come Together to Benefit from WY Commissioner’s Tag

Recently, two local non-profits benefitted from the generosity of the Wyoming Game & Fish Commission. Mark Anselmi, WY G&F Commissioner gifted a coveted Commissioner’s Tag to the KD Foundation for Juvenile Diabetes, which was founded by Jane and Jim Daniel in honor of their daughter Kaydin.

The KD Foundation created a raffle board and was able to raise $10,000 for their cause from the interest shown by local and regional sportsmen hoping to win a chance at this once-in-a-lifetime tag.

When the winner was drawn, the lucky recipient was Larry Fusselman.

Larry, who is the founder of Kari’s Access Awards chose to re-raffle the tag to benefit Kari’s Access Awards, which brought in $12,500 for this non-profit organization.

Kari’s Access Awards & Larry Fusselman graciously donated 10% of proceeds back to the KD Foundation.
