Welcome to Cheyenne Wheels for Charity
Who is Wheels for Charity?
Founded in Cheyenne, WY, in 2013, Wheels for Charity has raised more than $300,000 for local charities. Each year, Midas of Cheyenne partners with a team of equally charitable local businesses to customize and restore a vintage car. Once the build is complete, the vehicle is raffled off, and all proceeds from the raffle tickets are donated to local non-profit organizations.
Introducing “The Coupe”
This year’s ride is a completely custom 1942 Ford Business Coupe, named in honor of the legendary late rock DJ Steve “Coop” Cooper. This beauty is the result of more than 3,000 hours of restoration.
