KINGSFORD — Tickets are on sale for the annual Udderly Amazing Cow Bingo fundraiser sponsored by the Kingsford High School Academic Booster Club.

This year’s event will take place Saturday, May 18, at the Kingsford High School Athletic complex. The cow will have from noon to 2 p.m. to pick a winner. If no winner is selected by the cow, winners will be chosen by random drawing.

The annual event has taken place since 2008 and generates about $18,000 for the club, club president Renee Lindholm said.

“The Cow Bingo Fundraiser has a big impact on students and staff here at Kingsford High School,” she said. “We have helped bring in guest speakers, support class field trips, purchase special project supplies, sponsor college tours and provide scholarships to students, along with much more over the years.”

They have offered three-day college tours for juniors for the past 10 years. Most recently, the club bought Dilly Bars for students to celebrate Academic Spirit Week and completing state testing. They also provided snacks and water for students during testing.

Only 300 tickets will be sold at $100 each. The grand prize could be as much as $10,000 if all tickets are sold. There will also be four $500 winners. Buyers must be 18 years or older to purchase.

Tickets are available at the school office at 906-779-2670. This year, they have added the option of purchasing a ticket through Venmo/PayPal.

The cow once again is being provided by the Strahl family at Dirt Road Ranch.

The club was formed in 2003 to help provide financial assistance for academics. Money also goes to scholarships for seniors.

“Without the support of our generous community we would not be able to provide such support to students and staff at KHS,” Lindholm said.
