Bingo Night

On Friday, March 4th 2011, the Ross Road gym was transformed into a lively, tropical-themed bingo hall! Parents and kids alike had a blast – it was just the summery thing we needed to cap off such a chilly week! Great to see so many smiling, happy faces and so many fantastic tropical outfits!

This event was planned as a community-builder… an opportunity for Ross Road families to connect and have fun together outside of normal school hours. But we are pleased to announce that it also raised some money for the school too! $1159 to be exact! Wow! So a big thank you to everyone who came out and had fun at Bingo Night 2011!

And of course, a HUGE Thank You goes out to Jen VanderMye who organized the whole event so efficiently along with her fantastic team! Including of course Harry Bulpit and Geoff Donohue, those dynamic MCs/bingo callers who kept the evening moving along with great humour and energy! So many other parents and students helped out …by creating those amazing tropical posters, decorating the gym, donating prizes, setting up tables/chairs, organizing food & drinks, signing people in, checking winning bingo cards, handing out prizes, clearing up afterwards, etc…a big thank you goes out to everyone who volunteered their time and energy to make the evening such a huge success!

Another big Thank You to Jen, and to Tovah Paglaro for seeking out and organizing all the fantastic prizes that made everyone so happy at the prize table up on the stage!
