Pacesetters, an organization that benefits several counties, is hosting a fundraiser
Pacesetters Inc. is excited about its new fundraiser, Cow-A-Pooh-Looza. When asked about the origin of this event, James Dial, Development Coordinator for Pacesetters, said, “ we were trying to come up with a new event to complement our Spring golf tournament, and we didn't want to do another 5k or dinner, per say. We knew some other groups had done this type of event, but maybe not to this scale.”
The event will take place at Putnam County Fairgrounds on October 13th from 10am to 2pm. The event will include music, games, and food for people who wish to attend that day. Admission will be $1 or a can of food to benefit Helping Hands. Tickets are being sold for 500 squares prior to the event at $20 each. The ticket holders get in free the day of the event. You do not have to be present to win. The arena will be marked off into 500 squares. Squares will not be assigned to ticket holders until the day of the event. A cow will be led to the middle of the arena about 12:45, and wherever he makes a deposit will determine the winner of up to $1000.
Pacesetters is a not for profit agency that provides services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Karen Galbraith, Executive Director, of Pacesetters, said “Funds raised from this event will go to help bridge the gap for people that Pacesetters provides services to that are either under-funded or not receiving funding at all.” Karen also stated, “We are a very lean and efficient organization. For every dollar generated, 90 cents goes directly toward the provision of service.”
