Get your 3 person team together and get ready to launch those pumpkins! The event requires a 3-person team with a slingshot and a small pumpkin, BOTH supplied by Besecker & Coss.  The Teams are to HIT and break large paper targets with the slingshot and the pumpkin.  When the Teams break a target, they will receive the prize assigned to that target.  EVERY target is a winner.  There is a grand prize of a Flat Screen TV!  After 1st round a pumpkin can be purchased for $5 per team for each additional round until targets are gone.

As always, this will be an outdoor event and fund-raiser held next to Besecker & Coss in Olean.  This year's fund-raiser will support "SHOP with a COP", funded by the Dempsey Club of Olean, NY.  School Resource Officers work with Olean City school teachers to select students to participate in their December event.  Each student is given a monitory amount, accompanied by a City Police officer, to shop for their family members for Christmas.  After shopping, the students are treated to refreshments and wrapping of their gifts. The Dempsey Club of Olean, NY supports many of Olean’s youth organizations and has funded “SHOP with a COP” for almost 20 years.
