Foster Friess offers financial assistance to Roosevelt Fire victims
October 26, 2018

Jackson, Wyoming philanthropists Lynn and Foster Friess recently announced they would match contributions to the Roosevelt Fire recovery fund, up to $100,000. The generous donation is offered as a challenge grant by the Lynn and Foster Friess Family Foundation to match other donations for the cause.

The wildfire on the Bridger-Teton National Forest in western Wyoming in late September/early October consumed more than 61,000 acres and destroyed 55 homes in the Hoback Ranches area between Daniel and Bondurant. At its height, it was the #1 fire in the country for fire-fighting resources and more than 1,000 personnel were working on the blaze.

The Pinedale Lions Club and the Bondurant Community Club launched the Roosevelt Fire recovery fund campaign in October to raise money for recovery efforts. Only donations made to the Pinedale Lionís Club will be matched. Donations are tax deductible and involve no administrative costs. All money donated will go toward wildfire victims as prioritized by a specially-appointed nine-person committee.

People wishing to help can send financial donations to:
Lions of Wyoming Foundation
224 Talon Ct.
Cheyenne, WY 82009
Donors are urged to make checks out to "Lions of Wyoming Foundation" and include "Roosevelt Fire" in the memo.

Donations can also be made online here (there is a small processing fee): https://www.lionsofwyomingfoundation.org/donate.html
