The LCYAHL held a Baskets, Bags, and Baubles Bingo fundraiser on Sunday at the Farm and Home Center. Doors were scheduled to open at 1 pm and by 12:45 pm there was a long line of eager bingo players waiting to get in! When our MC Kenny Rose called the first bingo ball at 2 pm, the room was packed with over 180 enthusiastic people armed with dabbers (“dabbers” or “daubers” = special markers used to mark a bingo card).
There were many big winners! The event boasted 22 coveted game prizes, including Vera Bradley bags, Silpada jewelry, Longaberger baskets, Thirty-One totes, and Pampered chef items. A lucky door-prize winner was selected after every game. There was a 50/50 cash prize raffle as well as a raffle for some fantastic prizes (restaurant gift cards, car detailing, pampered chef, teeth whitening, etc.). Firebird Bantam and Midget players dutifully delivered prizes to the excited winners throughout the afternoon.
No one left hungry. Chrissie Bunn and her volunteer kitchen staff provided a superior array of food from drinks to lunch items to snacks (both healthy and decadent).
The Baskets, Bags, and Baubles Bingo fundraiser was a huge success by all accounts, raising over $6500 for the LCYAHL!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who attended, donated an item, and helped out during the event. Also, hats off to our hard working fundraising committee: Kimberlie Bennett, Chrissie Bunn, Mary Dougherty, Kathy Granbois, Sue Hixson, Maria Lehman, Daneen Miller-Smith, Tressa Monkman, Julie Otter, Sheri Pettoni, Michele Powl and Scott Yoder.
