Over the years we are invariably approached with the comments of “I wish I could do more” and one of the responses I always give back to that statement are “We can always use another warm body.”
The Fund is looking at the possibility of trying a couple new things this year – one is the Paint Night for Charity event and that actually comes to us via a group that is doing this once a month for different organizations; we happen to be a lucky (and grateful) recipient of their efforts. Other than trying to get people to go to that, our part is limited.
The Fund is also planning to submit an application to the state gaming and special revenue division to apply for a permit to host a (hopefully) weekly BINGO event as allowed under 501(c)3 rules.
If we are successful, this will allow a much steadier stream of earnings to The Fund as well as year round presence.
In order to do that we need more help; the game cannot be run with less than six volunteers. So with that, this is our call for help from those that might be interested.
We are targeting Monday nights right now on a weekly basis. We do not necessarily need anyone to come EVERY Monday night (it would be awesome but it is far from a requirement). If you could do one or two a month from 5:30PM to about 9 to 9:30PM that is all that is needed.
If you have any interest in helping out or just getting some additional information please let me know – my email address is Jason@Zandri.net (best way to contact me) or via my cell phone at (860) 614 6069
Thank you for the consideration.
