Margaret River Montessori School’s signature fundraising event, the annual Cow Pat Lotto is on again at this year’s Agricultural Show on Saturday October 15.
The quirky raffle-style competition sees ticket holders assigned one of 600 squares in a grid created over a paddock, where a single cow is allowed to roam until the animal ‘selects’ a square by depositing a cowpat.
A grand prize of $8000 will be up for grabs while $500 will be donated to the Margaret River Agricultural Society.
Lotto coordinator Denise House said it was important to remember the tickets always sold out.
“We don’t want anyone to miss out, and they do sell out every single year so please don’t wait to buy them!”
Funds raised this year will be directed towards path construction and development of the boardwalk and wetlands areas at the school.
Tickets are $30 each and are available to purchase individually or in books of six. Tickets can be purchased at the Montessori School office, from the Hemp Shop or Spool & Spindle. For info visit www.margmont.wa.edu.au
