COW PATTY BINGO
Legacy Festival is also the annual fundraiser for the Eagle Valley Land Trust, including a silent auction and the wildly popular Cow Patty Bingo. This year, the Cow Patty Bingo Grand Prize is 2 nights in Vail, including $1,000 in cash. Even better, each deed enters you into the Bah-Bah Bingo round. The more deeds you have, the better your chances of winning. Winners need not be present to play. Cow Patty Bingo Deeds are available online now at www.evlt.org/legacyfestival.
In small ways and in big ways, we all take measures to conserve our water, wildlife habitat and natural resource for future generation. At the conservation expo, learn how our actions today preserve and protect the outdoors for future generations. You’ll also hear stories about the Eagle Valley from 5th generation ranchers on how they preserve our scenic views one acre at a time.
