Annual Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Fundraiser

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo.- The Platte River's Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing program has been dedicated in helping heal those that serve, and now they're needing the community's support to do just that.

Project Healing Waters is a group that began in 2005 that helps disabled and wounded military service members and veterans returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Platte River's program lead, Duane Cook, says the activity helps many who have come back with PTSD and other struggles to get back on their feet. It's a calming hobby that can help clear a person's mind from stress, depression and anxiety.

The group will hold their annual fundraiser, "The Water Holds No Scars," which will include a dinner, auction and raffle Saturday, April 22, 2017.

The event will be at the Little America Grand Ballroom. The raffles and silent auction will begin at 4pm until 5:30pm, and the program begins at 5:30pm.

Tickets are $75 and include a ribeye steak dinner and entry into three cash drawings ($1000, $500 and $250 prize). Tickets are available at Alf's Pub and Alpine Dental in Cheyenne, as well as Sears in Laramie.
