Over $55,000 donated at fundraiser for Miss Wyoming

300 to 350 people attended a fundraiser Sunday afternoon for Miss Wyoming Lexie Madden of Torrington and raised over $55,0000 to help cover Madden's expenses to the Miss America pageant in Las Vegas.

Madden's father Lex Madden said the turnout and the amount of money raised was phenomenal and beyond their expectations. Madden said a golf trip to Devil's Tower brought $2,500 and $3,000 was paid for a hunting trip.

Madden said if anyone couldn't be there Sunday and wants to make a donation, they can send it to the Lexie Madden fund at First State Bank or send it to Torrington Livestock, P.O. Box 1097, Torrington, Wyoming 82240. Madden says if there is any excess money raised it would go to scholarships and next year's Miss Wyoming.
