Cochranvilleâ€”Canine Partners for Life plans its annual Open House and Cow Bingo on Saturday, Sept. 15 from noon to 4 pm at their facility at 334 Faggs Manor Road, Cochranville. Bring the family for an afternoon of free fun to discover how service dogs change lives.
â€śWe are changing lives every day at Canine Partners for Life thanks to the support of our community,” said Janie Cramer, CPLâ€™s Executive Director. “The Open House gives us the opportunity to celebrate our mission with our longtime supporters and introduce our mission to new members of the community,â€ť
This year, the event will kick-off with a â€śRibbon-Tuggingâ€ť ceremony for the Grand Opening of the new Marian S. Ware Program Services Center! The ceremony will begin promptly at 12:30 pm and will feature one of Canine Partner’s amazing service dogs in training.
After the ceremony, you can tour the new building to see where our puppies are whelped, check out the brand new and significantly larger harness shop where we construct our service dog harnesses, and view the many upgrades that make our building more accessible and comfortable for the individuals we serve.
After touring the new building, stick around Open House to visit the puppy kissing booth, watch service dog demonstrations, tour our kennel, shop local vendors, indulge in a variety of treats from local food trucks, enjoy live music, and take your chance to win $5,000 in our ever-popular Cow Bingo!
Cow Bingo is a game of chance that pits your luck against the cow â€śdooâ€ťing her business. If the cow heeds the call of nature on your square, you are the lucky winner of $5,000! Tickets are $10 each. Squares are randomly assigned and chances are 1 in 3,000.
The cow will be released at 3 pm. Tickets can be purchased early by cash or check using the order form found here. Winner does not need to be present to win.
