The Y.ES. Foundation is following State and local recommendations regarding gatherings of any kind during COVID-19.  A few of the changes this year include the event will take place in the Equality and Frontier Halls. Rest assured, you’ll still have the best seat in the house.  Face masks and hand sanitizer is readily available, and other precautions are taking place.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.

In September, the Foundation received a variance from the Wyoming Department of Health and are now able to seat eight people to a table. As part of this variance, we are not selling individual tickets.  Table sponsorships can be found by clicking on the “sponsorship opportunities tab” below. If you have any questions, please call or email Mary Melaragno. [email protected] or 307.696.3670

We are strongly encouraging all guests, performers, volunteers and staff to not attend if you are sick or immune compromised.  If you choose to attend, we ask that you take appropriate precautions including masks, gloves, and social distancing. 

The Youth Emergency Services Foundation is hosting its 19th Annual Dinner to benefit the Youth Emergency Services (Y.E.S. House). This fun filled evening will include a silent and live auction, delicious dinner, and Dancing with the Gillette Stars as entertainment for our distinguished guests.

We are all aware of the ongoing employment and financial situations that our community has been facing. The Y.E.S. Foundation is thinking about each of our families and friends who have been impacted. While many circumstances have improved, many of our families continue to struggle. When stress impacts a family, it also increases the need for the services that we offer.

Within our community, our families are dealing with strain from job losses, home foreclosure or dwindling savings, all of which place pressure on parental relationships and on the family as a whole. Like all non-profit service organizations, our funding stream has been negatively impacted just when our services are needed the most by Campbell County’s children, youth and families.

We rely on you, our members of our community to support this most important fundraising event each year. Funds raised will be used to further the services and programs offered by the Y.E.S. House. In 2019, 1,038 children and families utilized the Y.E.S. House. Children who had no other safe haven; families in crisis and in need of guidance; and young people who have gained the skills for a better life are just a few of those that were served. The Y.E.S. House provides the education, prevention and counseling needed for a brighter tomorrow and our caring and professional staff give hope to so many.

We believe that you will make a valuable contribution to this event and greatly enhance our overall mission to serve our children and families in need. We invite you to sponsor, attend, donate to the auctions and give to the Y.E.S. Foundation again this year and help us, help those who cannot help themselves.

Please know the Dancing with the Gillette Stars Committee is taking extra precautions due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The committee will ensure the day of the event everything is in ordinance within City, County and State guidelines. In the event DWTGS is not able to be hosted in-person, your donation will be considered a tax-deductible donation, and a committee member will be in contact with you with information on how to attend digitally.

Thank you for standing with us, Together We Can make a difference.
