Coahoma’s Big Red Band Booster Club will be hosting “The 3rd Annual Cow Patty Bingo” on Saturday, April 7th from 10 AM to 3 PM at Coahoma ISD behind the Elementary School and near the tennis courts in Coahoma.
According to Ronda Turnbo, member of the Band Booster Club, the field will be marked off into squares and a cow is lead onto the field. Whichever square the cow makes it's "deposit" on wins $500. While attendees are waiting for a winner to be determined, there will be carnival booths set up for the kids, as well as food booths, and drawings for other prizes.
The organization is selling squares for $10 each and it will also enter your name into a raffle for door prizes. Squares can be
purchased from Ronda Turnbo at 432-466-6419.
Kids can also play all the carnival games during the event for $10 hand stamp, or tickets will be 25 cents each and 1 ticket is good for one game.
Vendor booths will be available for $10 each and will be accepted up until Saturday, and they can range anywhere from food to garage sale items, but it should be noted that Coahoma ISD is a peanut-free campus, and peanut items will not be allowed. To purchase a vendor booth, you can contact Erinn Moore at 432-816-7439.
The money raised from the event will go towards scholarships for the Coahoma Band Seniors, and it will help with the purchase of any other band supplies needed.
