Bingo games Sunday aid in fight against cancer

By From page A5 | July 12, 2013

Odd Fellows Bingo is back on Sunday. All proceeds this month will benefit the American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life, which funds research to find cures for cancer.

Doors open at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St., at noon on Sunday and play begins at 1 p.m. Typically, 14 games are played in the course of the afternoon and play ends after the “blackout bingo” game about 4 p.m.

Players can win $50 or $60 per game, with $250 awarded to the winner of blackout bingo. Game packets may be purchased at the door for $20 each (or $12 for the economy packet), which supply bingo cards for all games for the afternoon.

The Odd Fellows also run a snack bar featuring an assortment of food and drinks available for purchase.

Bingo is open to the community, but only adults may participate. Because this is sanctioned gambling, children are not allowed.

The Odd Fellows Lodge has operated bingo in Davis for the past six years and proceeds are provided each month to a charity partner or beneficiary. Typically, in the course of a year, the Odd Fellows provide more than $8,000 to charitable efforts and community groups through bingo.
