Cow patty bingo is Saturday
I49W jmgj

No one has ever reported seeing a cow playing Bingo with human beings. But come Saturday, you can see human beings playing Bingo with cows.

The game is called Cow Patty Bingo, the first-ever such fundraiser sponsored by the Dawson County Humane Society and the TLC Humane Society in Cumming. The game starts at 1 p.m. at Veterans Park.

It should be cool, it should be fun; were partnering up with TLC for our first time doing it, Humane Society Assistant Director Dezeree Habgood said.

Cow Patty Bingo starts out with a 1,000-square grid drawn out on one of the baseball fields. At 1 p.m., two cows will enter the field. The cows then have two hours to go to the bathroom, Habgood said.

The ticket-holder of the number on which the cow first chooses to deposit its cow patty will win $1,000 or 10 percent of the ticket sales. The ticket-holder of the second square a cow chooses will receive $500 or 5 percent of ticket sales.

Tickets are $10 and folks have until the cows enter the field at 1 p.m. to purchase tickets. They cannot be purchased after the cows take the field.

The event will feature animals available for adoption and a bake sale. Sponsor Clene Start will have products on site for sale.

To purchase a ticket or for more information, you may call the Dawson County Humane Society at 706-265-9160.
