Bingo Event Raises Over $1,500!

Bingo enthusiasts join in the fun at Aleli Parlor’s Bingo Fundraiser on November 1, 2015
On Sunday, November 1, 2015 the Sisters of Aleli Parlor No. 102 hosted a Bingo Fundraiser at the Monterey Moose Lodge in Del Rey Oaks, California.  The event was open to the public and gave Aleli Parlor an opportunity to let the community know about Native Daughters of the Golden West, the non-profit foundations, and our Home in San Francisco.

Thirty people attended, including members of Junipero Parlor No. 141 and San Juan Bautista Parlor No. 179 who also joined in the fun. Guests had the opportunity to play early-bird as well as regular Bingo games. Aleli Parlor members donated a variety of gift baskets for use as Bingo game prizes in addition to a plethora of raffle and door prizes. Pizza, nachos, homemade sweets, and other snacks were available for purchase.

The event, Aleli Parlor’s first fundraiser in many years, helped to raise over $1,500 to support parlor activities and to fund community outreach programs. Parlor members were pleased with the outcome and are planning another Bingo fundraiser in the summer of 2016.

Many thanks go to Aleli Parlor members Joanne Reyes for chairing the event and to Arlene Tavani, Joanne Reyes, Laura Lawrence, Lillian King, Marlene Wisdom, and Rosemary Perez for their donations and effort to make this event happen. Special thanks go to Aleli Parlor husbands Rocco Tavani and Elrond Lawrence for cooking and running the snack bar during the event.
