If you like bingo, you’ll love Blingo! It’s bingo with designer purses and cash as the prizes! This year’s Blingo event is on Saturday, September 21 at the Punxsutawney Eagles Club on the second floor. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and Blingo begins at 1 p.m.
Tickets for the event, which is a fundraiser to support the mission of the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center, are $35 per person. Included with your ticket are 16 Blingo games, including the final game for $1,000 cash, a variety of heavy appetizers, and non-alcoholic beverages. A cash bar is also available.
Participants have the opportunity to see the purses up close before the games begin and also to purchase additional blingo cards for each of the 16 games. Throughout the event other games of chance with purses as prizes will be played and a 50/50 drawing and a Chinese auction will be held. To view the purse selection for the event, visit our Facebook photo album.
To make things convenient for ticket holders, MC, Visa, and Discover cards will be accepted at the event.
If you purchase a ticket for the event, then find you can’t attend on Sept. 21, your ticket can be played by a family member or friend.
Tickets are on sale now at the Weather Discovery Center, from any Weather Discovery Center board member and by calling 814-938-1000 with a credit card. Less than 200 tickets are available – so get yours soon!
