Tickets have gone on sale for Busselton Hospice Care Inc’s new fundraising event at Beerfarm. “Putting the fun in fundraiser”, the event “cow poo lotto” gives those involved the chance to win $20,000. The event involves an open field, where a 50sqm fenced enclosure will be constructed, within the enclosure is a 25m x 25m grid that will create 625 2sqm squares. Each ticket holder will be allocated a number from 1 to 625 that matches the number of squares in the fenced enclosure. At 2:30pm, cow one will enter the fenced enclosure and will be free to roam, after 30 minutes cow two will enter and this will be repeated at an interval of 30 minutes until cow five enters. Cow poo Lotto finishes when a cow poos in the enclosure. If required the lotto will continue beyond Beerfarm’s closing time at 6pm, until a cow poos. The person who owns the square that contains majority of the cow poo will be declared the winner. “It’s about raising awareness of what it is that we do, I think it’s important for people to know that Busselton Hospice Care doesn’t get any ongoing government money, so we really rely on the goodwill and generosity of the community,” Busselton Hospice Care Inc chief executive officer James Jarvis said. Mr Jarvis said this fundraiser was different from any other fundraiser the hospice had done in the past. “We’ve got our kind of go to things such as Go Blue for June, which was really successful, as we hit our target of $60,000, which was great,” he said. “We have been looking for creative ways to try and have some fun but also put the spotlight on a really important cause.” The funds raised from the event will go towards the core service at the hospice, which allows the support volunteers to get critical training to help the patients in the hospice unit in the hospital. The cow poo lotto will be taking place at Beerfarm on November 12 at 2.30pm. To purchase a ticket or to find out more information, head to the Busselton Hospice Care website or Facebook page.
