Bingo bashes.

I started the Bingo Bash circuit on February 9th by attending the Sweet Heart Bingo Bash at the Kikino Metis Settlement. Delilah organized a fundraiser for the grads and seniors in her community. More than 54 bingo players were in attendance to support the Kikino community.

How can you play so many cards at once?

Bonnie from Crossroads Outreach School in Buffalo Lake hosted a Bingo Bash to raise money for the graduation field trips. The graduation students helped with the spaghetti supper, 50/50 draw and raffles. I fell in love with the tiny mukluks made by Yvonne, so I had to have a pair.

In order to play radio bingo at the Peavine Recreation Centre on March 19, a tent was set up outside because there was no radio reception inside due to the metal roof. The stereo system equipment was inside the tent, so we could broadcast the radio bingo game inside the recreation center. Toni organized a St. Patrick's theme bingo bash, and bingo players played stand up bingo prior to radio bingo which was FUN to watch.

A Mother's Day Bingo Bash was held at Heart Lake First Nations. Joanne who works as a Water Plant Operator hosted the Bingo Bash to raise money for the Head Start & Day Care programs. Joanne thought it would be a great idea for the community to play Radio Bingo and to raise money for the community. Mother's received a strawberry bouquet, and the door prizes included a bread maker, microwave, vacuum cleaner and many more great prizes. Thank you Delilah, Bonnie, Joanne and Toni for your warm hospitality and for inviting CFWE Radio Bingo to your community events.
