LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Cowboy Joe Club's annual auction has raised more than $315,000 for University of Wyoming student-athlete scholarships and resources.

The club is UW athletics' main fundraising organization.

A sold-out crowd of close to 600 UW supporters from around the region attended the auction held recently in Cheyenne.

The auction is the Cowboy Joe Club's largest annual fundraising event.

UW Senior Associate Athletic Director Randy Welniak says it's impressive that the auction generates the amount of money it does.
