“I really feel strongly about Bridges Outreach. I witness it daily at Kokomo High School and see how much it helps the kids,” McCoskey said. “It’s a program that works, and it’s growing. It could go nationwide. It’s that good.”
McCoskey said she’s not surprised Bridges Outreach has a bright future in front of it, but she said she did have a surprise or two, or three as one of The Pooper Scooper Sisters.
“It’s more poop than I expected, my husband has done it before and he didn’t even have to scoop much,” McCoskey said about the family affair in picking up future fertilizer.
But like any star with their sights on Broadway, The Pooper Scooper Sisters get a charge from entertaining an energized crowd.
“The energy is hot here!” McCoskey yelled over cheering fans rooting for their favorite four-legged player. “Everyone is really involved and laughing at everything that happens.”
And there was definitely a lot happening. One donkey/person duo faced a penalty: “Too much manhandling over there, no manhandling allowed!,” a ref — Yes, there were refs — yelled.
McCoskey said, donkeys, manhandling and The Pooper Scooper Sisters aside, the true visual of value is what the core of the event represents.
“There are principals, assistant principals, teachers, county people, city people and they’re all here playing [on the donkeys] for one common goal,” said McCoskey.
