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.
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.
