The 4 th Annual Toys for Tots Roping in Torrington, Wyoming, on Nov. 27 was designed to build a cache of toys for Santa to give to elementary-school kids in Goshen, Niobrara and Converse counties. Tee Cee Wills capitalized, too. The heeler pocketed $1,180 when he placed twice in the 10.5.
Producers Cory Clark and Michael McNamee wanted to thank the staffers and contractors who discounted rates or volunteered their time, to raise even more money for toys. In addition to the dozens of actual toys purchased and brought to the roping by contestants, many more were purchased thanks to donations by individuals including DD Deleo, John Curls, Lex Madden, John and Nicole Graham, Jason Plummer, Tim Temple, and Delane Haynes.
Yet more support poured in from area businesses including Torrington’s Starch Barn and Torrington Livestock Markets, Lusk’s Bloomer’s and The Insurance Corner, Goshen County Rooster Boosters, Farm Credit Services of America, Ranchers Feed & Supply, First State Bank, Lusk State Bank, Pinnacle Bank and Buck Creek Freight.
