A cow-rific event
MacLellan Riverview Scholarship Fund gets bovine assistance for the 17th year
The MacLellan family has put together a community scholarship fundraising event for Sunday and once again, the cows will be helping out.
This is the 17th consecutive year for the annual cow flop contest. It involves putting a cow in a field that is broken up into a grid of squares.
Tickets are sold and each ticket represents a square. When the cow lets go and it lands on your square, you win.
The approximate value of the prize if all tickets are sold is $5,625. The same amount is given to the Riverview scholarship account.
The event started after J.J. MacLellan died in a motorcycle accident, to raise money for the students that receive the scholarship. Every year two deserving students from Riverview High School in Coxheath receive a scholarship from the proceeds.
The family is asking for community support to make this another successful fundraiser. In the past, businesses, community members/groups, and organizations have contributed prizes, food and gift certificates that are given away at the field on the day of the event as appreciation to the many people that come out to watch and take part in the activities.
Those that contribute to this event will have their company names displayed at the field and announced on local radio stations.
This year the cow flop contest takes place at McGuire Farm Upper Prince Street, Sydney.
The farm can be reached by using Green Road or McGuire Road off Grand Lake Road and it’s at the back of the Sydney mail sorting station.
Tickets are $5 each. A ticket is not needed to attend. There will be a barbecue, events for the children and entertainment.
