“It’s been a while since we’ve had a grand prize winner,” said Rob Saunders, chair of the Rotary Club of Huntsville’s Media Bingo on Cogeco/YourTV.
“With the holiday season just behind us, we figured some lucky person could use the bonus cash.”
With that in mind Saunders announced that there will be a guaranteed jackpot game on Tuesday, January 7 at the regular 7 p.m. time.
Normally the grand prize of $4,000 is only awarded if a player fills a full card in 52 called numbers or less.
With the special promotion on January 7, numbers will be called until someone claims the prize, guaranteeing a $4,000 grand prize winner. Like all normal bingo nights, prior to the big game, there will be four regular games in which an additional total of $1,000 will be won.
Tickets are just $8 and can be purchased at the new Canadian Tire Gas Bar, two downtown Circle K stores, Brunel Mart, Westside Variety, West Road Convenience, Shoppers Drug Mart, and both Capstone Petro Canada locations. Cards are also available at Huntsville Bowl and Boston Pizza, who both will be broadcasting the games and offering food and drink options to players.
Rotary Bingo, on Cogeco/YourTV channel 10 and 700, has been a main fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Huntsville since its inception in 1999. Each year approximately $90,000 in prizes are awarded to lucky bingo players with winning cards.
Net funds from bingo are used to fund the club’s human resources budget which directly supports medical and social financial requests from those in need throughout the year. The funds also support the Rotary Club’s extensive youth programs, including the breakfast club, youth exchange program, educational workshops, and retreats for young adults.
In 2019, the Bingo broadcast was extended to Parry Sound and the Parry Sound Rotary Club offered to assist the Huntsville group in selling cards locally. They are using their bingo proceeds to assist with investments in their community.
Make sure you buy your tickets today and tune in to Cogeco/YourTV Cable 10 or 700 at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 7 to play and possibly win up to $5,000 in cash prizes.
