The Seminole County Athletic Booster Club held its bi-annual Cow Chip Bingo this month as a fundraiser for the student athletes at Seminole County High School. Almost two hundred squares were purchased for $50 each, and there were three winners: two winning $500 and a grand prize winner receiving $5,000.
A steer named Jimmy was borrowed from the Dave Lambert family to participate in the event. Jimmy did a fine job of picking three squares, proving he was well fed by the Lambert family.
At the end of the wasteful event, Jimmy selected three squares. The first square had been purchased by Superintendent Mark Earnest, awarding him the first $500. The second square Jimmy selected had been purchased prior by Mrs. Andrea Lambert, earning her $500. The third and final square was the proud winner of $5,000. Jimmy selected the square owned by Scott Mitchell of Clover Leaf Gin (a corporate sponsor of the booster club).
Shown here in the picture is Bradley M Grantham, Executive Board member of the booster club, handing a check in the amount of $5,000 to Scott Mitchell.
Thank you to all who helped and participated in Cow Chip Bingo. The efforts netted the club over $3,500 that is going to much needed support of the teams and athletes of Seminole County High School.
