In our kitchen you can purchase meat ball sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza, hot dogs, cheese cake, donuts, chips, candy, ice cream, hot cocoa, coffee, water and soda.
 
The entrance fee is $2.00 however you can also purchase additional games, an early bird game paying $300.00 and two 50/50s.  The 50/50 games usually pay an average of $250.00 and our last game which comes with your entry ticket pays $500.00.  Frequently our total prize money approximates $2000.00 which includes the two 50/50 prizes.

 

We are usually finished by 9:00 PM just in time for you to get home and watch your favorite TV show.  Bingo players must be at least 18 years of age.  If you would like to avoid the Monday night football doldrums come out and play Bingo with us.

When looking around the Bingo floor I see many players who don’t live in Holiday City South, yet they are here winning some of the prize money. In the last few years our attendance has dropped due to illness, aging and people moving away. Bingo needs the support of our homeowners so that we can continue to provide financial contributions for the community bus service.

FEBRUARY 2016 UPDATE

 

Holiday City South Senior Community Bingo is played every Monday evening in the auditorium building 'C' of the community complex. The doors open at 5:00 pm for the participants to purchase their game tickets and food. The menu includes but is not limited to pizza, hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches, soup, donuts, soda, water, coffee, tea and many other items are part of the menu including some specials.

 

Bingo is attended by people from our community and many of the surrounding communities. The games start at 7:00pm with $1300.00 of prize money given out for the standard games. Additionally, there are two 50/50 games with the prize money as high as $265.00. Weekly attendance can range from 100 to 140 participants. This endeavor does not happen by itself and requires volunteers to work the kitchen, ticket sales, the financial desk and the bingo machine. At this time we have approximately 55 volunteers but we are always looking for additional volunteers as full time or substitute workers.

 

The kitchen workers start at 4:15pm to prepare the food for the evening and work until 8:15pm. The ticket sales people start at 4:45pm and work until 7:15pm. The bingo callers and machine operators start at 6:30pm and work until the games finish at approximately 9:00pm. The people at the financial table start at 4:00pm and work until 9:00pm. Some workers volunteer each week while others can work as little as once every five weeks.

 

Although we will accept volunteers for any job assignment, at this time we are in dire need of a Treasurer. The Treasurer's job responsibility includes counting the night' s proceeds, setting up the start-up money for the ticket and kitchen sales, payout of game winnings and writing out checks for the payment of bills.

This assignment requires the Treasurer to be there at 4:00pm until 9:00pm each Monday evening and then on Tuesday morning to make the deposit at our local bank. The Treasurer is supported by two assistants that also count the proceeds, set up ticket and kitchen start-up money and balance the evening's proceeds.

 

Without volunteers bingo will not be able to continue. This would be a great loss to the bingo players who look forward to enjoy a night out with friends. Additionally, bingo has provided financial support for our community needs. Bingo has provided moneys for various projects that normally would come out of the communities' general fund.

 

Won't you consider helping the community that provides you with all the amenities of a good life here in Holiday City South?

Please contact Larry Puccio at (732) 349-2950 to volunteer.
