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 22, 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.
