Bingo! IR Band Boosters to host fundraiser Friday night


It’s time to break out those bingo daubers, at the 8th Annual Bingo Fundraiser, hosted by the Indian River High School Band Boosters.

Players can get the thrill of being in a speedy game of bingo on Friday, March 4, at the Millville Volunteer Fire Company’s fire hall, all while supporting the band. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and games start at 7 p.m.

Guests can get lucky all night with special games, door prizes, raffle items and a 50/50 drawing.

Big prizes start with Longaberger, Vera Bradley and Thirty-One. But cash, gift certificates and other merchandise are up for grabs.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase beforehand, so guests can come hungry.

The event is the IRHS Music Program’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

Led by conductor Nathan Mohler, the band performs free community shows year-round, including at football games, holiday parades and at least three public concerts. Now, the community can chip in show their appreciation by sending the kids to this year’s band trip at Gatlinburg, Tenn., near Knoxville, where students will perform, take part in a workshop and have a fun musical trip.

Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Attendees must be 18 or older to play. More information is available by calling (302) 321-9020 or emailing IRBandBoosters@gmail.com, or online at www.facebook.com/IRBBoosters.
