‘We the People’ fundraiser at Sidewinders Tuesday

JACKSON HOLE, WYO — The Jackson Hole High School We the People (BRONC LAW) team is partnering with Sidewinders Restaurant to raise funds for their trip to Washington, DC this April 26-30. You can help and you may not have to alter your routine one bit.

Team coach Jim Rooks relayed to Buckrail that the Rice family has generously agreed to donate 10% of total sales at Sidewinders Restaurant on Tuesday, March 19 to the cause of getting the BRONC LAW team to DC.

Joe Rice and his family have been strong supporters of just about anything community related, especially programs like We the People, which helps to promote civic education in America.

This partnership came about in great part thanks to longtime Sidewinders bartender, Nick Olmstead, who has been observing Rooks’ class as he pursues his teacher certification. Olmstead has been closely involved with We the People and has helped coach various teams for the past five months.

“Nick helped ‘bridge the gap’ by coordinating the Tuesday event at Sidewinders,” Rooks said. “Nick has also agreed to donate half his tips that night towards our National Finals trip in Washington, DC.”

So think about making lunch or dinner plans at Sidewinders this coming Tuesday to help support these young citizens as they prepare to represent Wyoming in competition against teams from across the country. And don’t forget to tip your bartender!

Tuesday, March 19 is also the opening day of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, so sports bar Sidewinders is the place to be that day.

A big thanks to the Rice Family for their generous support of civic education.
