Bingo

bingo_cardBand credits are now $25 per bingo shift!

Bingo at the VFW is currently one of the Wildcat Pride’s biggest fundraisers. The money it raises helps reduce the cost of every member’s fees. Volunteers who work bingo also receive a “thank-you” credit to their band accounts for each date they help.

The Band Booster Club manages two nights a week of bingo for the VFW post on Powers Ferry Road near Harry’s. On each of those nights, four booster volunteers sell tickets, run the cash register, work the floor, and call the numbers. For three to four hours of fun work, you get $25* to your band account and the satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped make our marching program a success.

*Timely arrival is critical to helping the other Wheeler workers and serving the customers who arrive to play Bingo.  Volunteers earn account credits based on the following schedule:

Arrive on time at 6:00 pm (3:00 pm Sunday):  $25.00 credit

Arrive between 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm (3:30 pm and 4:00 pm Sunday):  $20.00 credit

Arrive at 7:00 pm (4:00 pm Sunday) or later:  $15.00 credit

Bingo workers must be at least 18 years old and have been a member of the boosters for 3 months. You must complete paperwork, be fingerprinted, and be cleared through the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Approval takes a few weeks, so be sure to complete your paperwork well in advance of when you want to work.

Once you’re approved, you will receive regular emails with available dates. Check the calendar for bingo event dates and times.
