The Mary Stewart Lions Club will hold the 14th annual Cow Drop fund raiser on Saturday, April 14, 2012 with the rain date scheduled for Saturday, April 21, 2012. The event will be held at our club building on US 301 between Dunn and Benson, NC at 10:00 A.M. The club will sell 200 tickets for $50.00 each. We will lay out a 60ft. by 30ft. rectangle on the ground. We will then lay-out 200 squares at 3ft by 3ft each. A corral fencing will be placed around the rectangle. The morning of the event we will place all 200 tickets into bucket and draw them one at a time. We have a similar grid drawn on a piece of poster paper. The first ticket drawn will win $250.00 and will be still be eligible for the grand prize. The ticket will be placed on the grid. Every 50th ticket drawn will win $100.00 and still be eligible for the grand prize. Each ticket will be placed on the grid. At 10:00 A.M. we will turn a cow loose in the corral. She will wander around the enclosure. When she “poops”, whichever square is hit first wins the $2,000.00 grand prize. This has been a good fund raising event for us and generates a lot of interest in the community. We, also, sell tickets to people and organizations who might be outside our community. Anyone interested in purchasing a ticket or if club would like to purchase a ticket please contact me at 919-894-8003 or 919-614-2562. This is a good way for a club to potentially add to their coffers.
