Silly Bus Partners With Chick-Fil-A for Operation Cow Drop

Popular kid's music group to perform at Hanover County Airport charity event 02.26.2010 - Richmond, Virginia - Silly Bus is supporting local charities again! This time, the educational media group is teaming up with Chick-fil-A for their third annual "Operation Cow Drop" at Hanover County Airport on May 8, 2010.

Started by Chick-fil-A's Virginia Center Commons and Virginia Center Marketplace locations, Operation Cow Drop is a day of family fun filled with children's activities, entertainment, booths, exhibits and food from Chick-fil-A. This year's event will also feature a musical performance by Silly Bus.

"Silly Bus loves Chick-fil-A, and we're thrilled to support Operation Cow Drop and local charities," says Silly Bus co-founder John Henneberger. "We can't wait to take the stage and hope Richmond families will come out and join us."

Operation Cow Drop supports dozens of charities in the Greater Richmond area through the sale of tickets that represent mini plush cows. The actual cow drop takes place during the event. Stuffed-animal cows are dropped from the sky, and those landing closest to the 'cows eye' win prizes for their owners.

Adds Henneberger, "The cows drop from a real plane with real parachutes. It's a fantastic sight the kids will love."

Proceeds from mini plush cow sales benefit more than 50 non-profits in the Richmond area. Event entry is free.

For a complete list of non-profit organizations selling tickets, go to www.chick-fil-a.com/virginiacentercommons. For more information, or for non-profits interested in raising funds through the sale of Operation Cow Drop tickets, contact Pam Myers, Chick-fil-A Marketing Director, at 804-928-8848 or marketing4cfa@aol.com.
