5th Annual Basket Bingo this weekend

Plans are underway for a Basket Bingo on Sunday, November 4 at 1:00pm at the Old Lycoming Township Fire Hall with all proceeds going to Lycoming County United Way.

The event is being organized by United Way volunteer, Diane Stine and sponsored by Range Resources.

“This is our fifth year and we’re excited to make it better each year. In addition to all of the baskets being filled with extra prizes and gift certificates donated by local businesses and friends of United Way, we’ve increased the super bingo game this year to be even bigger,” said Stine. “Super Bingo is one game with one winner of more than $1,000 in Longaberger products and everything for a great outdoor patio.  From the gas grill to the fire pit; we have it all and you will want to win.”

Bingo players can win prizes, manufactured in the U.S.A by the Longaberger Company, and enjoy an afternoon out with friends and family for refreshments, door prizes, a Chinese auction, and other games of chance.

“It is a fun way to support a great cause,” added Stine.

Advance tickets are available for a $20 donation at the United Way office at One West Third Street, Suite 208, Williamsport or by calling 570-323-9448.  Tickets at the door the day of the event are $25.00.

There will be 20 regular games included with the ticket purchase. There will also be five special games and the Super Bingo, available the day of the event. Doors open at 12:00 noon with an
Early Bird Special Game at 12:45pm

“I enjoy helping United Way because it supports many essential human service programs in the county. Some of them could not operate without funding from United Way. Helping multiple programs
with one special event is a fun way to do something good for our neighbors, and a great way for me to give back to the community,” explained Stine.

The kitchen at basket bingo is run by volunteer Sherry Paulhamus, office manager for Range Resources.

“We’ll have hamburger barbecue, hot dogs, home-made baked goods and all kinds of goodies to snack on while they play bingo,” Paulhamus said. “I’ve helped in the kitchen for several years and
I’m always happy to support United Way because the programs funded help so many
of our neighbors here in Lycoming County.”

This fundraiser is in no way connected with or sponsored by the Longaberger Company.

Lycoming County United Way mobilizes resources to improve lives by funding 38 human service programs based on community need and program outcomes. For more information on Lycoming County United Way or Basket Bingo, call 570-323-9448.
