Denim & Diamonds Fundraising Event to Benefit CRMC

Denim ‘N Diamonds is celebrating 25 years!

The Denim event will be held Friday, June 27th at Riata Ranch in Cheyenne, Wyoming from 6pm to 11pm. “The Riata has a large, covered arena that can hold 1000 people and shelter us from June Thunderstorms. We will have two Wyoming based bands, Wagonhound and Jalan Crossland, so wear your boots and come dance in the dirt and have a really fun time,” says Marian Schulz, Foundation board member and Denim ‘N Diamonds co-chair with board member Mona Pearl.

For $40, you’ll receive two drink tickets and appetizers. The ranch has a two-story luxurious clubhouse with fireplaces, bar pool table, and more. Decorations will have a Western theme with bandanas and hay bales.

If you like getting fancy and attending a more formal, lavish event, on June 28th is the Diamond event. As always, the Diamonds event will be held at Little America Hotel & Resort starting at 6pm. Lobster and filet mignon will be served, and a theme of blue and silver for the 25th anniversary will be on full display. The big brass band, Jackson 6, will be performing, and a short live auction will take place.

Individual tickets for the Diamonds event are $175.00.

The proceeds will be benefiting:

Our project this year is to purchase fixed vital sign monitors to be installed in each patient room. Making use of this new technology, these monitors have already been installed in each room in the new Emergency Department and the Cancer Center.

These monitors will allow staff more time for patient care as they will no longer have to move the equipment from one room to the next. This equipment will communicate directly to our new health care records system, EPIC, allowing for patient records to be entered in a timely and 100% accurate manner. Most importantly, the machines help CRMC staff to continue our great record of low in-hospital infections by dedicating one machine to each patient for the duration of his or her stay. Each machine will be cleaned according to requirements after the patients are discharged.
