Rend Lake College staff and the RLC Foundation are teaming up to raise money to make improvements to the college’s Learning Resource Center library with a Glo Bingo event next month. Locals are invited to have dinner and play bingo at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 9 at the RLC Rec, located on the Ina campus.
The Glo Bingo dinner features chicken and dumplings, salad, corn, tea and lemonade, and will be served from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. for $10 per ticket. The Franklin County 4-H Federation is partnering to provide the meal. Additional concessions will be available throughout the evening.
After dinner, attendees can purchase Glo Bingo tickets for $25, which includes six bingo cards, a glow hat, and a glow dabber. Games will begin at 7 p.m. Additional bingo cards are available for purchase for $5 per six cards. Attendees who plan to eat dinner and play bingo can purchase a meal ticket and the bingo pack for a discounted rate of $30 total.
Competitors will have the chance to win over $1,000 in cash prizes. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, and early bird and middle bird raffle games at the door.
Seats for the event are limited. No outside food or beverages are allowed. Glo Bingo participants must be over the age of 18.
