UW Starting Quarterback Andrew Peasley and Mike Devereaux Headline Boys & Girls Clubs Fundraiser
Two incredible Wyoming athletes are headlining this year's Boys & Girls Clubs Reverse Raffle and Auction. Those athletes are University of Wyoming starting Quarterback Andrew Peasley and former MLB standout Mike Devereaux.
That news comes from a press release from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming, who wrote that "University of Wyoming starting football quarterback and team captain Andrew Peasley will kick off the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming’s Game Changers Reverse Raffle & Auction on Saturday, February 4, at the Ford Wyoming Center in Casper."
The release noted that Peasley has completed his bachelor's degree in kinesiology. He is a two-time Mountain West Conference Player of the Week and a 2022 All-Mountain West Honorable Mention. He will be returning to the Wyoming Cowboys team next season.
Similarly, former Major League Baseball Player (and Casper native!) Mike Devereaux will have a featured role at the Reverse Raffle and Auction.
"Devereaux’s extraordinary skills on the baseball field and elite athleticism made him a force in the Major Leagues," the release noted.
The Reverse Raffle and Auction, benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming, is an annual event that raises money for young people in Natrona County and beyond. The event features a dinner and the opportunity to bid on hundreds of different items, trips, and experiences.
"Some live auction items include a new Aspen camper from Sonny’s RV; a game-worn jersey signed by NFL football star, Logan Wilson, who lived in Casper; a Panama trip and a trip to Belize; a 1989 Cadillac; original artwork and much more," the release stated. "One golden ticket holder will win $5,000! All proceeds support providing Central Wyoming youth with great futures."
