Tickets are still available for the 6th Annual Rotary Black Tie Bingo event, to be held Saturday, February 5th at the Kalif Shrine Center on Loucks Street in Sheridan. Sheridan Media is co-sponsoring the festivities, which are held each year as a benefit to a local non-profit.
This year two entities will receive money from the proceeds of the fundraiser: The Free Clinic and the Y Camp of the Big Horns Scholarship program.
Don't let the name scare you off -- no tux or formal wear is required, as it is a come-as-you-wish get-together. The theme this year is "Mardi Gras with a Western Attitude" and attendees are welcome to wear a costume if they desire.
Renee Obermueller is on the planning committee for the Black Tie Bingo night, and she tells us it's going to be a good one.
The raffle tickets are only $20 each or six for $100 and can be purchased at the YMCA or First Federal Savings Bank.
Cathi Kindt is the Director of the Free Clinic, and their portion of the proceeds will go toward providing money to patients involved with the nurse case manager chronic care program. She outlines what will be available in the silent auction Saturday night.
Sandy Sare describes where their share of the proceeds will go.
Sare adds that one of the live auction items will be a full weekend availability at the camp for twenty to thirty people, which would be perfect for family reunions or big gatherings. It's located 15 miles west of Buffalo at the former Pines Campground.
Cost for the Black Tie Bingo event, which includes dinner, bingo, and the auction, is $80 per person. It all gets under way at 7 pm Saturday evening. We have contact information posted on our website for you to secure your ticket.
