Mesa County Department of Human Services Executive Director and the Mesa County Sheriff made a friendly bet on their 2015 Men in Heels teams and now it is time to pay UP!
Prior to the 2015 Latimer House, Men in Heels race, MCDHS, Executive Director, Tracey Garchar bet Sheriff Matt Lewis that his MCDHS Men in Heels team could beat the MC Sheriff Office team in a head-to-head race against the clock. The Mesa County DHS team was victorious when they ran the first heat against the Sheriff’s Office team during the Men in Heels Race on September 24, 2015.
Now it is time for Sheriff Matt Lewis to pay up and we are inviting the media to document results of this friendly wager. The check presentation will be on Monday, October 12, 2015, at 1:30pm at Latimer House. Lewis will present Garchar with a check, which will then be donated to Theresa McKenzie on behalf of Latimer House.
