The South Lyon Band Parents Association has a “Large Bingo License” issued by the Charitable Gaming Division of the State of Michigan. The Bingo Fund Raiser is the major source of funding for the South Lyon Band Parents Association.
What does the Bingo Fund Raiser do for the Bands?
Bingo benefits both “Band Parents” and “SLBPA.” Proceeds generated from Bingo go into the General Operating Budget of the South Lyon Band Parents Association. Also, adults that work will receive $20 per 4 hour shift into student accounts to be applied towards band related fees. Less than 4 hours is a half shift, and you still get $10.
This is a significant portion of the budget for SLBPA and greatly helps reduce the band expenses for many parents!
Bingo is held every Thursday of each month at the First Presbyterian Church.
How do I sign up to help out?
Helping is easy! We will start you with a very easy assignment; selling concessions or as a floor worker. After you work a couple shifts you will see how easy all the assignments are. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a shift contact: John Hester. (see the Booster contact page for contact information.) Or use the form that you can find on the home page.
Bingo Workers commonly work from 4 pm – 8 pm or 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm. Concessions are sold from 4:30pm – 8:30pm. Also, individuals that prepare concessions could prepare the food during a time that fits their schedule.
Note that any worker that comes in at 6:00pm or later can only count the shift as half a shift, but you can add half shifts up as well. Sometimes splitting the time works better for people and their schedules.
What kind of help is needed?
Are all the volunteer spots full and you still want to help? Come out and PLAY bingo. Bring your friends and family along as well. You'll have a great time and you could even win $$$ and help “SLBPA” at the same time.
We Need BINGO Callers!
Ever thought of hitting it big time and being a bingo caller? We, have we got a deal for you! Free of charge we can hook you up.
We need more people willing to do the calling so that the current callers don't have to be at bingo multiple times a month. If you are willing to learn, please contact Mike Hamann <[email protected]> or Matte Abate <[email protected]>
