We’re holding our second biannual bingo game this Saturday evening from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. Come on over for a chance to win $100 or more per game! We have lots of space in the hospital’s fourth floor community room and a computerized bingo program projected onto two big screens. Starting at 4:30 p.m., there will be pizza and drinks for purchase at a nominal fee. At 5:30 p.m. the first game will be called. Be sure to be in your seat by then because that game, sponsored by Crescenta Cañada Pet Hospital, pays $200! If you bring the coupon on page 6 you’ll get an extra card for this game.
Tickets are $10 for 10 games, two cards per game. You can buy them at the Chamber office today or tomorrow between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. or you can call us at (818) 248-4957 and we’ll place them at will call. Tickets will also be available at the door but we expect a full house so come on the early side. Families are more than welcome but only 21 year olds and up can collect winnings.
Proceeds from bingo support the programs and projects put on by the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce. Examples are the Hometown Country Fair, 5K Fun Run, golf tournament, donations to community organizations and college scholarships. The Chamber operates on a frugal budget but there are overhead expenses that need to be met. While we strive to improve all aspects of life in our town, the Chamber’s main objective is to promote a vital business community. Whether you are a business owner or not, a thriving business climate has been proved to increase the quality of life in any community.
