The Senior Center won the ServeWyoming Non-Profit Impact Award at the Philanthropy Days banquet in Laramie. Out of 530 votes the Senior Center had 243 and won by 20.
The center's Volunteer Coordinator, Nancy McKenzie, noted that the conference was “inspiring, hearing the amazing stories of what non-profits do throughout the state."
The Sheridan Senior Center was awarded $1,000 to be used toward any program they wish. They had tough competition against the Healthcare for the Homeless Clinic in Casper and the Wyoming Family Home Ownership Program of Cheyenne and Laramie.
