Greetings to all family and friends of Trinity Lutheran Church & School!
This is your invitation to the annual TLS gala and auction on Saturday, March 14, at the Terry Bison Ranch!
We’re very excited for this year’s gala— it’s going to be the best one yet! Our Western-themed evening will start out with a happy hour at 5:00 PM (cash bar) with dinner to follow at 6:00 PM. (Child-care will not be provided, so please make arrangements with a sitter for the evening.)
Gala tickets are $45/piece or $450 for a VIP table, which includes eight seats, eight raffle tickets, and two bottles of wine— that’s a great deal! You can purchase tickets in the church & school office, from any TLS teacher, or through our secure online Square™ store.
A gala ticket gets you admission to the event, dinner, and access to both the silent and the live auctions!
Come bid on one-of-a-kind items made by TLS students, faculty, and staff as well as some fantastic donated items from friends and sponsors in Cheyenne’s business community! Be on the lookout for classroom auction baskets to start popping up around the school over the next few months.
Once again, we will be having a raffle as part of our fundraising event.
A raffle ticket gets you a chance to win an IWI Masada handgun + shooting accessories package, a $1100+ value!†
Raffle Package includes…
- IWI Masada 9mm handgun
- Vortex Venom red-dot holographic sight
- Hoppe’s handgun cleaning kit

- 100 rds. Hornady Critical Defense ammunition
- Stack-On lockable gun storage cabinet
- Scheel’s cap & water-bottle
- Certificate to attend the NRA Basic Pistol class, offered in March or May at the Cheyenne Rifle & Pistol Club.
This state-of-the-art handgun is sure to take its place as the prize piece in some lucky gun-enthusiast’s collection! The winning ticket-holder need not be present to win. Raffle tickets are $20/piece or 6 for $100.

This school year’s gala will be a fun and relaxing night out for Trinity parents, friends, faculty, staff, and church family, a time for all of us to get together, enjoy one another’s company, and shower some support on our beloved school. The generosity of our TLCS family and friends is what enables our school to keep on doing what we’ve been doing in Cheyenne for the past 127 years: providing an excellent Christ-centered education for the children of our church, our sister congregations, and the broader community. In all of this we keep tuition as low as we can without making sacrifices in quality. It’s no overstatement to say that we couldn’t do it without you. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you at the Terry Bison Ranch on Saturday, March 14!
