Broadacres Charity Bingo [71]

Bingo113/14/08: What do you get when you combine fried food, high stakes, adrenaline rushes, money for charity and bingo?  A swell evening!

Friday night, over $10,000 in prizes was up for grabs and 100% of the proceeds went to the Humane Society of Chittenden County

At Broadacres Charity Bingo in Colchester, old and young alike have been playing bingo for years.  Many began the game with their grandparents and are carrying on the tradition.

So bring a good luck charm, lots of multi-colored dabbers, mind your manners and BE ON TIME for charity bingo at Broadacres.

And remember, when in doubt, YELL BINGO before your 20 seconds is up...

Music by Colin Clary, off Apocalypse Yow!, "Top Secret Secret Project."  This song is perfect for bingo because many players are highly secretive about their bingo outings.  As one player put it, "You don't want your husband to see you at bingo with your boyfriend."  The presence of my camera was enough to  unsettle many patrons.  Sorry!

Although I've never ventured into a Bingo Palour... The thought of Bingo always reminds me of when my sister and I were little and while vacationing at our Grandmother's cottage on Bala Park Island in Ontario we'd always have a Bingo Night at the cottage. Our parents would buy cheap but wonder prizes at the local Marina/Hardware/Toy store in Bala. My favourite was always the Paint-By-Number kits. You brought back a great memory.


Everyone like Bingo party
