The Cow Patty Bingo contest will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 30. The owner of the space where the cow leaves its present will receive up to $500 and a Texas Roadhouse – Niles Butcher’s Basket. Only 300 tickets will be sold. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased online until Sept. 29 at, or in person until 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 30.

The event, which is sponsored by Texas Roadhouse – Niles, the Mullee Family/Boss Babes LLC, Hope Center for Cancer Care, Curtis Layer Design/Build, Shaker Painting, the Howland Hope Chest LLC, Darlene Kearney of Coldwell Banker/Schmidt Realty in partnership with the Trumbull County Fair Board, will help breast cancer survivor Jenifer Harris of Cortland with her lost wages and out-of-pocket medical expenses.

Jenifer, a mother of five, was diagnosed with Stage I breast cancer in August 2022, just three months after her family bought their first home. She has undergone two surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and two hospital stays, which have cost the family hundreds of dollars and caused her to miss months of work.

Jenifer’s husband, Steve, a truck driver, has picked up as many extra shifts as he can, and the family has cut many expenses, including using a single car for transportation. Yet they still must choose which monthly bills they can pay. They need our help.
