The dam is a cow that exemplifies true longevity in a dairy cow. She is 13 years old and still has a very nice udder and continues to exhibit great overall condition even after many years of producing calves and milk. These are the types of genetics one wants to propogate within their herd.
I am going to sell raffle tickets for $50 each for a chance to win this awesome bull calf and all the proceeds will go to World Help for the Rosie Project. Rosie is a baby I met while I was in Guatemala who is in need of a series of cleft palate/cleft lip surgeries. The cost of these surgeries is $6500 and we currently have raised around $3600. If you would like for your name to be entered into the drawing for Jim Dandy, please send a $50 payment to me. You can make out checks to World Help and your gift will be tax deductible but donations must be mailed directly to me so that I can put your name in the drawing. (I will then forward the money on to World Help.)
My address is as follows:
Tammy Renee' Cupp
1103 Quick's Mill Rd.
Staunton, VA 24401
Winner of the calf must make arrangements to pick up the calf or have the calf shipped at their own expense. Any vet fees and paperwork necessary to get the calf ready to ship over state lines is also the responsibility of the winner. In the event the first name drawn declines, we will draw again. Calf must be picked up/shipped no later than January 15th, 2012.
We will accept donations for a chance to win Jim Dandy up until December 23rd, 2011. Our drawing and the winner of the calf will be announced on December 24th, 2011.
There is one more twist to this raffle. Several folks are buying tickets who have generously given up their chance of winning in order that someone else might have a chance at owning Jim Dandy. If you are unable to contribute to the raffle but would still like a chance at winning the calf, you may send me an message telling me what owning this calf would mean to you and why you would appreciate the opportunity to be included in this raffle. I will choose up to four names to be included in the drawing from these short essays.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE CHOSEN TO BE IN THE DRAWING AND WIN THE CALF YOU ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR TRANSPORTATION/SHIPPING CHARGES AND VET FEES ASSOCIATED WITH SHIPPING A CALF ACROSS STATE LINES .
In the event the winner of the calf fails to pick him up by the designated date, another name will be drawn.
Please share with your friends and family and let's raise as much money as we can for Rosie! My desire is to have the total amount for her surgeries by the end December 31st!
