Bingo night helps Opera Guild
The Opera Guild of Granbury will have its annual Bingo Night fundraiser at De-Cordova Bend Country Club on Oct. 15 from 5-10p.m.
They have been holding the Bingo Fundraiser for many years according to Gari Wise, director of FUNdraising for the Opera Guild.
The Guild supports the Opera House and allied arts. Two years ago, $16,000 was given for software, hardware, and a sound system. Mirrors for dance rehearsals and classes were also purchased.
Fortunately, last year’s Annual Bingo Party FUNdraiser netted $12,500. This enabled The Guild to rebuild their coffers. Scholarships were awarded to four Granbury Theatre Academy students.
This year, the goal has been set again to $12,500 so the scholarship program, as well as other needed items for the “crown jewel of our town,” the Opera House, can be funded.
Tickets are $30 each which includes a taco dinner, homemade dessert, 2 bingo cards and 1 door prize ticket. Additional bingo cards are available at $2 each and additional door prize tickets are also available for $5 for 1 ticket or $20 for 6 tickets.
Tickets sales are capped at 150 for safe distancing. CDC guidelines will be followed for safe distancing. A mask will be be required to enter and when not seated.
Tickets are available by call or text to Gari Wise, 214-532-9901, or Lavada McDaniel at 817-559-0088
