Menís Cook-off and Redneck Ball
Benefit for A Woman's Work
by Dawn Ballou, Pinedale Online!
May 11, 2009

A Womanís Work (AWW) held their 1st Annual Menís Cook-off and Redneck Ball at the Sublette County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 9th. Men showed off their culinary skills to help raise money and awareness for the organization. The public paid $20 for entrance and the opportunity to go around the room and try samples of the different delights. The categories included main dishes, appetizers and desserts. There were prizes awarded for the Peopleís Choice winners, as well as for Judgesí Choice and Best Overall. Live music was provided by the band "Drive".

A Womanís Work is a privately funded and supported organization that helps women, children and families of Sublette County School District #9. The group began in January, 2008, with the desire to help women in need. They started with the challenge to get 100 women to donate $100 each in 100 days. They achieved their goal in under 100 days. They use the money to help women with dire needs that arenít met by other resources in the community. All they ask in return is that the woman they help performs an act of kindness within 60 days.

In 2008 they approved 17 grants for assistance amounting to $16,735.95. Community partners donated another $9,509, making the grand total $26,244.95.

In 2008, EnCana granted AWW a total of $10,000 to help with both operational costs and grants. The Upper Green River Sustainable Community Fund (UGR) of the Wyoming Community Foundation granted AWW $16,000.
