ERIE, Colo. -- Booster clubs can be found in schools across Colorado raising money from student groups to athletics. While many of these fundraisers come in the form of a raffle or magazine sales, the Erie High School Booster Club has a different way of raising money.

They call it the Moo Poo Classic.

The booster club divides a field up into plots for parents and other supporters to buy for $10 each.  Then, well-fed cows are allowed to roam the field. If one of them makes a “deposit” on your plot, you’re a winner of up to $1,000.

“If you had asked me three years ago if I was going to stand in front of people and talk about cows pooping, the answer would have been a definite 'no,'” booster club president Tori Hollis said.

All the money goes to a good cause, everything from funding scholarships, grants for teachers, and prom.

Parents say the Moo Poo classic is a way to prioritize their kids as number one while having a little fun talking about number two.

While it’s too late to take part in this year’s Moo Poo Classic, the Erie High School Booster Club has many innovative ways to raise money.
