Fallston, MD (July 30, 2013) – According to the nursery rhyme, there was a farmer who had a dog, and Bingo was his name-o. B-I-N-G-O! Make plans now to head over to Level Volunteer Fire Hall on Friday, August 16, 2013 with this song in your thoughts and the homeless and neglected animals of Harford County in your heart. The Humane Society of Harford County (HSHC) is hosting a fun-filled Basket Bingo to raise funds for the thousands of animals it shelters each year.
Doors open at 6pm and bingo begins at 7pm inside the fire hall located at 3633 Level Village Road in Havre de Grace. Admission is $12 in advance and $15 at the door (or until tickets last). To purchase tickets in advance, contact Kim Aumiller at 410-836-1090, x111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Twenty regular games will be offered with game winners getting either all four corners or five spaces in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line across their card. A few “special” games will be thrown in where players have to achieve special patterns on their cards. Baskets for each game winner have been donated by area businesses and animal lovers.
Refreshments will be offered for sale, and door prizes will be given out over the course of the evening using players’ admission ticket stubs. In addition, fabulous prizes will be raffled including jewelry, patio furniture, BBQ and picnic themed items, pet supplies and so much more. Raffle tickets are $3 each, two for $5, or an arm’s length for $10.
There will be many winners at HSHC’s first Basket Bingo, but the real winners will be the homeless and neglected animals at the shelter who benefit from the proceeds raised at this event.
