Rainbow bingo

Are you ready? (echo) Are you ready? Are you ready? (echo) Are you ready? To play BINGO with you.

My sister told me that Rainbow Bingo at the Sno-Valley Senior Center in Carnation was a hoot and I should join them for the night.  I immediately had visions of a quiet room with elderly residents hunched over Bingo cards and in spite of hearing aids all around, they would be struggling to hear the numbers called.   Well...I couldn’t have been more wrong!

BingoSylvia O’Stayformore and Kristen (Courtesy photo)Sis had taken the liberty to confirm a few friends and had reserved a table for 10 for our group.  It was a good thing too as the place was packed and far from quiet!
The night’s theme was the Seattle Seahawks and most people were decked out in their best Seahawks attire.  Actually they award prizes for the best theme outfit and give away $100 each event.

Sylvia O’Stayformore was our beautiful hostess with the mostest and she definitely got the crowd going and kept us entertained throughout the night. 

 And  yes  we  played  B-I-N-G-O. Your $15 per person ($25 for a couple) entry fee includes 10 bingo games and the winner of each game gets to pick an awesome prize.  There are also raffle ticket sales throughout the night plus food and drink (including beer & wine) for purchase.  Remember all the proceeds raised are for a great cause – the Sno-Valley Senior Center.
According to Kira Avery, Program Coordinator at Sno-Valley Senior Center, “Rainbow Bingo started in 2015 and it’s been a big hit since the beginning.  It’s a great way to draw community members to the senior center [who may otherwise not come here].”

The next Rainbow Bingo night is Friday, November 3 at the senior center and the theme is the Roaring 20’s.  Pull your flapper dress out of the closet and dust off your fedora and come on down for a night of fun. 

The Sno-Valley Senior Center is also having an Oktoberfest Dinner and Auction Benefit on Saturday, October 14 at Carnation Farms.  It will be a wonderful night complete with a German style dinner and a Bavarian Dance Band.
