Net proceeds support SBL Lincolnland Hospice programs.
By spending an evening playing bingo with friends, community members can help provide comfort as well as end-of-life wishes to Lincolnland Hospice patients and their families in 20-Illinois counties.
In support of services provided by Lincolnland Hospice, Sarah Bush Lincoln is hosting its sixth annual Binga fundraiser on Tuesday, September 17, at the American Legion in Mattoon. Doors will open at 4:30 pm with a light meal available for purchase. Binga offers participants a chance to win more than $2,000 in Longaberger handcrafted baskets and other home and lifestyle products. Early-bird Binga games begin at 5:30 pm, with regular Binga beginning at 6 pm.
Binga is played just like regular Bingo with Longaberger baskets, pottery and wrought iron products given to the winners of each game. For just $10 you can secure one of 250 seats available at the event. Your $10 ticket will secure your seat and entitle you to 10 games of Binga.
You can also purchase additional games at the event, including three games of early-bird Binga, two intermission games and five “Big Five” games. The “Big Five” games will be played for basket sets each worth more than $100 with a final black out game worth more than $300. Door prize tickets will be available as well.
A Chance to Win Big!
Raffle tickets ($1 each or 6 for $5) will be sold until the start of the Big Five Games at the event. This year’s raffle package starts with the Great American Picnic Celebration Basket woven in the colors of our American Flag. This beautiful picnic basket will make transporting your favorite dishes a pleasure. Its generous size and leather-hinged lid allow for easy access of multiple dishes which can be stacked using the WoodCrafts riser that is included in this package. Also included are numerous Americana themed items, paper plates & napkins, a yard flag, a blanket and a $200 Effingham Performance Center certificate.
Total value estimated at more then $500.
