The Fun and Help Keeps Coming!
As announced last month, our second Bingo! Event will occur Sunday, August 11, 1:00-4:00 p.m.
If you missed the advance ticket sales on the first Courier Day, tickets will be available at the door of the Ballroom starting at 12:15 p.m. before the event.
As described last month, the cost is $20 for fifteen cards of six games each plus $2 for the final special game card. If you are up to a lively pace, for just $25, two sets of game cards can be purchased for one player. Players must be at least 18 years old. We invite you to join in the fun as you share a relaxing, fun afternoon with friends and family as you work to win some of the prize money! You are welcome to bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages to add to your enjoyment.
While the afternoon is a social event, any funds in excess of costs are added to donated funds and put to good use in support of our various programs benefiting all of Sun City. Whether we use funds to purchase outdoor benches along neighborhood walkways, lighting in School House Park, a specialized exercise machine for the Fitness Center, the Survivor’s Guide binder or a handicapped accessible golf cart, the well-being of our residents tops our list of reasons for the purchases.
Our funding also underwrites the cost of the van and supplies used by our Home Maintenance volunteer teams as they answer residents’ requests for help with many of the needs around their homes. “Great service; they know what to do!” “The volunteers are always ready to help. Kudos and thanks to all of them!” “All the volunteers have been wonderful, working hard to fix or change anything!” “The service was done well and fast. They were very pleasant and I appreciated the phone call before their arrival.” These are just a portion of the comments sent by residents following a visit from the Home Maintenance volunteers and that is the only reward team members need to keep doing what they do so well. If you enjoy doing this type of work and have somewhat of a talent for it, you might consider joining the group. Call our phone number, 916.774.9040, and one of our helpful volunteers will call you back and put you in touch with the right person.
