B.I.S.O.N. Bingo Night
Our Welcome Back B.I.S.O.N. Bingo Night for our mentoring program was a HUGE success!!! We had 40 + mentees there with most of their mentors in attendance with them. We even had a few gracious mentors, whose mentees didn't show up, that stayed to help play bingo with some of our younger mentees. It's those giving, sacrificing people that make this program great!!!
The event occurred on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 6:30 in the gym lobby and a great time was had by all. The "photo booth" was rocking with feather boas, fake eye glasses, crazy hats, and picture frames to help accessorize the folks getting their picture taken. After eating a festive meal of hotdogs, chips, homemade cookies, and pop, we played a solid 45 minutes of different variations of bingo. There were prizes for the kids and almost every kiddo won at least once that night. Thanks so much to Deon Kauk, Roy Goldston, Lily Kendall, and Tammi Goodall for being the best Board of Directors ever and for always showing up to help. Dr. Pepper Bottle Co of Elk City donated our drinks. Thanks to everyone that brought cookies and helped set up and tear down. It was a super group effort and the kids have been asking when are we going to do it again!!
