When traveling salesman Edwin S. Lowe conceptualized the game of Bingo! in the 1930s, he invented a fun, simple match of strategy that became a fixture of both family game nights and charitable fund-raising events
This weekend, a very special event planned by the Weeki Wachee Area Club will combine both of these divine purposes into enjoyable effect! As a part of the club’s weekly, volunteer-run Bingo! games, a Father’s Day special event will be celebrated on Saturday, June 17th, at the Weeki Wachee Area Club. The doors will open at 10 am and Bingo! starts at 11 am.
Participating fathers get a complimentary Bingo! pack at this weekend holiday celebration; a continuation of a tradition at the club, which also hosted a Bingo! party in honor of Mother’s Day.
“YES, Dads! We care about you too!” said Maryann Johnson, president of Weeki Wachee Area Club. “So how could you pass up a free Bingo! pack? Plus surprise drawings and a special dessert.”
Plus, fathers in attendance will compete for the exalted title of King of the Day!
“Come join the fun for Dads,” said Johnson. “Enter to be the
‘King of the day.’ Bring in a photo of you and your kids. The father with the most kids will win chances all day for extra cash prizes.”
And it’s all for a good cause too! “The Area Club has been around for over 50 years,” said Johnson. “This year we are desperately trying to raise money to repair our parking lot. With this in mind, we have tried to come up with ideas to give back and share with our loyal people who have supported us these past years.”
Homemade food will be available for purchase at this family-oriented gathering, and guests are not permitted to bring in outside food. They are encouraged to bring and celebrate those amazing fellas who make such a positive difference in their lives.
