Play bingo Tuesday in Dixon

Three nonprofit organizations will benefit from Tuesday’s “remote caller” bingo games at the Veterans Hall in Dixon, 1305 N. First St. The doors open at 4 p.m. and games begin at 6 p.m. A second session will start between 7 and 7:30 p.m. and a third session at about 9 p.m.

Cards for the eight bingo games in each session will cost $25 each and may be purchased in advance at the Veterans Hall. The payouts for each game will be determined by the number of players.

Players will be at three separate locations — the American Legion in Dixon, the American Legion in Ontario and the Elks Lodge in Desert Hot Springs — playing the same game at the same time.
