LARAMIE, Wyo. -

Cowboy Joe Club

This year, the Cowboy Joe Club (CJC) established an initiative and presented it to its current and new members asking them to match the University of Wyoming student-athlete's efforts by giving 110% of their previous year's donation. The 110% Club has been a huge success for the Cowboy Joe Club and Wyoming Athletics. As of June 30, a total of 4,298 members have pledged more than $2.6 million with 31% of them giving at least an extra 10% totaling $208,428 in additional revenue.

In addition to the 110% program, there have been 269 CJC members who have increased their donations by at least one giving level, making them a "Cowboy Up" member. The Cowboy Joe Club has also added 557 new members this year.

"Our success with the 110% Club would not be possible without the unbelievable support and effort we receive from our staff, board members and fund drive volunteers," said Assistant Athletic Director for Development, Jeff Pivic . "Our fans truly show their commitment to us. They have given above and beyond and we can't thank them enough for their support of Wyoming Athletics."

All of the Cowboy Joe Club members that joined the 110% Club or increased their donation by at least one giving level were automatically entered into a drawing to win various prizes. The Club is excited to announce the winners as follows.
