CHEYENNE – First lady Jennie Gordon announced her partnership this week with Visit Cheyenne for the fifth annual Restaurant Week to be held in April.
Proceeds raised during Restaurant Week will be donated to the Wyoming Hunger Initiative, the first lady’s statewide initiative to combat food insecurity across Wyoming.
Cheyenne Restaurant Week is an annual event that features restaurants from across Cheyenne that choose to participate offering deals on special menus. This year, contributions can be made to the Wyoming Hunger Initiative, the first lady’s initiative that will in turn be used to fund local organizations who are on the ground doing the work to provide for children in Wyoming.
Diners at participating restaurants who choose to participate in supporting Restaurant Week will have the option of making a donation to support the cause. Gov. Mark Gordon and the first lady intend on participating in several locations, serving customers or dining out, which will give them a chance to speak directly to community members participating in Restaurant Week.
The Wyoming Hunger Initiative is housed under the Wyoming Governor’s Residence Foundation, a board that works closely with the first lady to ensure that small projects around the facilities can be funded, and assist in steering the initiative.
Visit Cheyenne aims to develop, promote and protect the Cheyenne area travel industry, thereby creating memorable experiences for visitors and economic impact for Laramie County.
