CASPER, Wyo. — Casper native and baseball player Mike Devereaux and University of Wyoming starting football quarterback Andrew Peasley will be guests at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming’s Reverse Raffle & Auction on Saturday, Feb. 4 at the Ford Wyoming Center.
Devereaux is one of the most prolific Wyoming-born baseball players in the state’s history, and he will share his game-changing story at the event.
“Devereaux’s extraordinary skills on the baseball field and elite athleticism made him a force in the Major Leagues. He will be honored at the event by the City of Casper for his contributions to the community,” a Boys & Girls Clubs release stated.
Pokes team captain Peasley will kick off the event. A veteran addition to the Cowboy roster, Peasley is a two-time Mountain West Conference Player of the Week and a 2022 All-Mountain West Honorable Mention.
Reverse Raffle & Auction attendees will have dinner and opportunities to bid on exotic trips and experiences as well as nearly 200 items in a live and silent auction. Some live auction items include a new Aspen camper from Sonny’s RVs; a game-worn jersey signed by NFL football star Logan Wilson, who lived in Casper; a Panama trip and a trip to Belize; a 1989 Cadillac; original artwork; and much more.

Plus, one golden ticket holder will win $5,000. All proceeds support providing Central Wyoming youth with great futures.
