July 14, 2014 - The Wyoming Lottery Corporation has signed on as a platinum sponsor of the 2014 Cheyenne Frontier Days, the world’s largest outdoor rodeo and Western Celebration.
"We're pleased to support Cheyenne Frontier Days," said Jon Clontz, the Wyoming Lottery's Chief Executive Officer. "We're excited about launching Powerball® and Mega Millions® sales in August, and being able to kick things off by sponsoring an exciting and heavily attended event that exemplifies fun, volunteerism and Wyoming’s western spirit is the perfect opportunity."
"The Wyoming Lottery's platinum sponsorship demonstrates its commitment to supporting the state and local economies and to becoming an integral part of the community," said Cheyenne Frontier Days CEO, Dan Cheney. "The Lottery is a great fit for our consumer and will benefit all of Wyoming. We’re happy to welcome them to the Frontier Days Sponsor Family."
The Lottery will have three exhibit booths located in Frontier Park during Cheyenne Frontier Days, including one in the Exhibit Hall. Visitors will have a chance to meet the WyoLotto staff, learn about the lottery, play games and win prizes. The Lottery is also conducting a VIP ticket giveaway on its Facebook page and at www.wyolotto.com. The Lottery will give away four packages good for an entire day of Frontier Days activities for four individuals. Two of the packages include four tickets each to the Frontier Nights Championship Bull Riding event on July 21, the other two feature tickets to the Brad Paisley concert on July 24.
Since 1897, scores of volunteers have given their time to put on Cheyenne Frontier Days, a ten-day world class event that attracts tens of thousands of visitors annually and draws top rodeo professionals who compete for nearly $1 million in cash and prizes. Cheyenne Frontier Days runs from July 18-27, 2014.
The official launch of Powerball and Mega Millions sales by the Wyoming Lottery is August 24, 2014.
