The event now involves 10 Rotary Clubs from across the Kootenay region and has become a huge success. The Invermere and Radium Rotary Club have been joining forces with other Rotary Clubs across the Kootenays to hold an online community bingo night each Friday. This past New Year’s Eve, an Invermere resident was the lucky winner of the online bingo night’s special New Year’s Eve event, earning a $10,000 prize. The bingo nights are held every Friday at 6 p.m., draw 500 participants throughout the Kootenay, and usually go for about two hours. They operate on a model, with half the money raised each week ($10,000) going to the Rotary Clubs involved, and the other half of the money (another $10,000) usually distributed to winners across five games. The New Year’s Eve special Progressive Jackpot game had one single winner who took home a $10,000 cash prize. Music Bingo has been a crowd favorite in pubs and restaurants across Canada for years and is now offered online providing a physically distanced, safe entertainment opportunity that can be enjoyed from the comfort of home. Similar to traditional Bingo, Music Bingo replaces numbers with clips from popular songs. Rather than numbers, Music Bingo cards have song titles and artists under the B-I-N-G-O – when the songs played by the DJ appear on a players card, they mark it off and win prizes when they complete specific patterns such as 1 Line, 3 Lines and Full Card. The noon-hour Cranbrook Rotary Club and the morning Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club are thrilled to be working together on this project. Both clubs are promoting this fun, new fundraiser and will be evenly sharing the net proceeds, to support local community projects. To purchase bingo cards please use the following link.
