Even though there isn’t going to be a Pine Tree Music Festival in Ackerman this year, that hasn’t deterred the ever diligent 20th Century Club from having their annual BINGO! Fundraiser!
Club members reach out to local businesses and individuals to secure the prizes which can range from apparel (for women AND men), automotive items, household décor, Gift Certificates AND cash. And, who can forget the last prize to be played for is generally always a 4-Ticket item. Historically, it has been some type of electronic device. Because the 20th Century Club is a non-profit women’s volunteer organization which is part of the General Federation of Women’s Club comprised of women of all ages from the area, the proceeds from the event are used to fund the various projects that the club works on each year in addition to helping fund two scholarships given to Choctaw County High School seniors.
Bingo will be held in conjunction with the Choctaw County Health Expo to be held on Saturday, June 3rd from 8 am – 2 p.m. on the campus of Choctaw Regional Medical Center. The Expo is being held to benefit the Choctaw County Medical Foundation. There will be a car show, live entertainment, concessions, inflatables for kids, door prizes, a free health screening and of course, BINGO!
It will be take place in the hospital cafeteria with entrance directly into the area and will begin at 11 am with admission to the area beginning at 10:30.
Even though the location and time have changed, everything else will remain the same! All-Day Tickets will be $30 and individual game tickets will be $1 each.
Be sure to let your faithful Bingo Buddies know, in case they haven’t already heard, and y’all come on out!
