Bingo proceeds benefit local nonprofits

From page A3 | January 05, 2014 |

Local nonprofits are $7,587 richer, thanks to grants from the Davis Odd Fellows bingo program. The Odd Fellows host bingo games on the second Sunday of each month at their hall at 415 Second St. in downtown Davis.

The beneficiaries in 2013 included the Davis High Madrigal Singers, Davis Bridge Educational Foundation, Yolo Community Care Continuum, Yolo Hospice, Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter, Yolo County SPCA, Camp Kesem at UC Davis, ALS of Greater Sacramento, Davis Encampment, Yolo Military Families and Relay for Life of the American Cancer Society.

Bingo players win cash prizes, paid on the spot, and all funds remaining after payouts and expenses are donated to that month’s designated beneficiary. The Odd Fellows have given out approximately $50,000 in bingo proceeds over the past eight years.

The next Odd Fellows bingo games are offered Sunday, Jan. 12. Doors open at noon and games begin at 1 p.m. A bingo packet may be purchased for $20, and an economy packet is $12.

Proceeds this month will be donated to the DHS Madrigals, who are raising money to cover costs of an educational trip to New York City this spring. They will attend Broadway musicals and the opera — meeting with the casts and musicians — and study and perform, by special invitation, with composer/conductor Eric Whitacre at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Since 1966, this auditioned 36-member mixed chamber choir has performed a cappella and accompanied music dating from the Renaissance period to present times. In their distinctive, Renaissance-inspired costumes, the choir performs approximately 40 times each year at various public and private events. For more information or to book a choir performance, visit www.davismadrigals.com.

The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge was chartered in 1870 and has more than 200 members, making it one of the largest such lodges in the nation. The Davis Odd Fellows put on A Taste of Davis, Breakfast with Santa and Breakfast with the Bunny, among other community events and projects.
