Oct. 1, 2015 LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The 29th Annual Cowboy Joe Club Auction sponsored by Infinity Power and Controls has sold out. This year’s auction will be held Friday, October 16th at Little America Hotel & Resort in Cheyenne.The annual auction, historically the Club's single-most successful fundraising event of the year, has reached a capacity crowd of 600 attendees.

"With a sell-out crowd and the number of items up for bid, we believe we can raise over $275,000 after expenses, for 400 Wyoming Cowboy and Cowgirl student-athletes,” said, Samantha Freeman, Director of Special Events for the Cowboy Joe Club. “Revenue raised from the event will be matched by the State of Wyoming in their commitment to Wyoming Athletics.”

The evening will include a silent auction, dinner and live auction with over 30 items. Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 5 p.m., when the doors open for the silent auction. Madden Brothers Auctions will serve as auctioneers during the live auction, with appearances from the UW Spirit Team and UW Cowboy Wrestlers, as well as other coaches and UW Administrators.

The following day on Oct. 17 the Wyoming Cowboys will take on Nevada for the annual Homecoming game.
