On October 26th, at the Cheyenne Wizard of Boo Ball presented by Red Lion Hotel & Conference Center, the event raised over $16,000 toward a select Community Boo-tification project. Leadership Cheyenne is a program of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce and has raised over $1.8 million for community beautification projects.
Past projects have included bronze installations for public art, utility wraps, landscaping, trees, Airport Fountain Restoration, and many others.
The sold-out event was held at the Red Lion Hotel and Conference Center.
"A big thanks goes out to this year's class for their hard work and dedication," Boo Ball Committee Chair, Chris Brennan said. "We also want to thank everyone who came out to have fun and help the city of Cheyenne."
The night consisted of a costume contest, silent auction, Booze Barrel Raffle, 50/50 raffle, and music. The DJs for the event were the Real Deal Vigil and Aldana Productions. The costume contest had five categories, and the winners are as follows:
Funniest- Man Dorothy
Most Creative- House
Best Group- Addams Family
Best Overall- Grandma Norm

Proceeds from the event will go towards funding wayfinding signs along the Cheyenne Greenway.
"We are finally back from Oz and are working diligently to report the amount of money raised," Brennan said. "I would like to thank all of our sponsors for their continued support of the Boo Ball, Leadership Cheyenne and the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce."
