Bingo raised over $1,300 for Variety Club

Writer says it was a good night at the annual Variety Club Bingo in Cache Creek.

Dear Editor

I begin my letter by apologizing for taking so long in writing it, but time seems to fly by. So, here goes…

On Feb. 4, Cache Creek Village held the annual Variety Club Bingo. Wow! What a great night. We had over 50 people in the house. Thank you to all who came out and supported the Variety Club for our kids.

Before I tell you how much was raised, I would like to thank the people who donated goods, prizes and worked so hard to make it a great night: to the Village staff and workers, The Royal Purple, Cache Creek Recreation, Irene, Lil, Mayor and Council members, our caller for the evening Eric Ogden, Citizen of the Year Tanya Wong who travelled from Kamloops to help us, Cheryl’s Restaurant, Hungry Herbies, Grubstake, Junction Shell and last, but not least, Safety Mart.

Now, for the total we sent to the Variety Club – $1,085 plus $255 in pin sales, for a total of $1,3335. Way to go! Hopefully next year we will double that.

Thank you everyone.
