Bingo is our primary means of fundraising. Many people have a misconception about bingo, so here’s the straight scoop: Bingo is a state licensed and closely monitored fundraiser for non-profit organizations. Each organization that is licensed to conduct bingo games is, in a sense, operating its own independent business–purchasing supplies, renting a licensed facility, maintaining financial records, advertising, providing a volunteer work force, paying taxes, etc–all in accordance with Colorado State Gaming Laws. So why do we operate a bingo “business”? Because it makes us lots and lots of money!!! Approximately 60-65% of our funds are earned through bingo!!! That’s $80,000 that we are not paying in school music fees!!! And that’s where you come in . . .
In order to run our “business” and earn all that money for the program, we need volunteer help–your volunteer help. Fortunately, the work is neither strenuous nor tedious. Volunteer duties include: selling bingo paper and pull-tabs (aka, “pickles”) to our customers, counting money and tickets, paying the winners, operating the cash register, and calling the bingo games. For a typical bingo session, we need 10-12 volunteers.
