ALTON — The Junior League of Greater Alton will bring back the glow-in-the-dark bingo event to the Riverbend as it presents cosmic bingo Friday, Oct. 2, at the Godfrey K.C. Hall on Stamper Lane.
The event will welcome players to a night of black-lit bingo when doors open at 6 p.m. The glow-in-the-dark games begin at 7:30 p.m.
“We are really excited about our second cosmic bingo event,” JLGA member and event organizer Lauri Sholar said. “We are certain it will be a night of fun, and the proceeds of the event will help fund Junior League’s mission to support women and children in the Riverbend Area.”
There will be more than $1,000 in prizes awarded at the event.
Tickets are $25 per person and include six paper cards per game (10 games total), a cosmic dauber and cosmic hat. Additional game cards will be available for sale. Sponsorships are also being sold to businesses and individuals hoping to put their message in front of a large crowd.
There is limited seating, so those interested in taking part in this event should buy their tickets in advance by visiting www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2188663 or contacting Lauri Sholar at (757) 477-3620. Those with parties of eight can also reserve a table in advance.
Participants must be 18 to attend. A cash bar will be provided, but individuals are invited to bring in their own snacks for the evening.
