Organizers of the Cordova High School Cow Patty Drop have made some changes so that the second annual fundraiser will be even more successful than the first, which raised $8,000 for the school.

Principal Kathy Vintson said that while plot sales went well last year, attendance was lower than expected. The event was held on a Saturday, which conflicted with local Little League schedules.

This year, the fundraiser has been moved to a Friday and will be tied in with an intrasquad game for the Blue Devils.

Proceeds from the deeds and booth rentals will benefit the school. Concessions will be manned by the Cordova Quarterback Club.

Other schools and clubs in the area will also be participating in the event, which will include various family activities and entertainment.

“We’re trying to let everybody have an opportunity to make some money and encourage more people to come out,” Vintson said.

Projects at CHS that could potentially be funded by the cow patty drop include new computers for teachers, a mobile computer lab and expenses associated with advanced placement courses.

Plots are available for $10 at Cordova High School or from any CHS student.

Booth rentals are $25.

The cow patty drop begins at 3:30 p.m. on Friday at the football field with a punt, pass and kick competition for grades kindergarten through fifth.

The intrasquad game will be held at 7 p.m. with the star of the show, Blu-Ella DeVill, set to appear immediately after the game.

The winner will receive $1,000. Door prizes will also be given away throughout the afternoon.

Admission to the event is free.
