On Friday 20th May we hosted a BINGO night and raffle in support of Volunteer Building Cambodia. Volunteer Building Cambodia (VBC) is a locally-run, community-driven NGO which aims to improve the living conditions of families in need in rural areas by providing them with wells, toilets and safe, dry housing. VBC are also looking into ways to break the cycle of poverty and help the families they build for start being self-sufficient and able to provide for themselves.
VBC had been busy collecting BINGO prizes from local businesses not in our regular pool of sponsors over the past few weeks and the combination of support for VBC, the draw of the fantastic prizes to be won and the pull of the BINGO games themselves resulted in a good turnout and a fun filled evening.
Stephen, our music quiz master, hosted the event and prepared a “rock and roll” BINGO round with snippets of songs to identify and mark off the sheets instead of numbers. This proved to be a popular few rounds with lots of singing along and even a little dancing!
We held our raffle draw after the games with lots of happy prize winners. Over the evening a total of US$411 was raised for VBC which will go towards their general building costs. As with all of our fundraisers all BINGO card sales, raffle ticket sales and any donations are collected entirely for the NGO. Check out our gallery of photos from the evening to see what we got up to as well as the great list of prizes; many thanks to our generous sponsors!
