Bruce Hays’s original plan was to restore a complete, but somewhat worn, 1959 Chevrolet Apache pickup that he’d bought to give to his wife as an anniversary present. Hays was a Desert Storm veteran and a captain in the Wyoming National Guard. He was recalled to duty in Afghanistan, and killed there in 2008.
Hays left not just a widow, but also a lot of friends who want to honor his memory. On Saturday, they’ll hold an auction of all kinds of items with the aim of raising enough cash to complete the Apache restoration. One such item is a package of Colorado Rockies tickets. It all starts Saturday, beginning at 3 p.m., at the Elks Club, 102 S. Second St., in Laramie, Wyoming. If you can’t make it, you can visit www.captainhaysapacheproject.com to make a donation.
