The Sanibel Captiva Lions Club will host the 32nd Annual Feather Bingo for Charity on Wednesday, Nov. 6, beginning at 6 p.m., at the Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. A turkey dinner with all the trimmings will be served and there will be numerous games and prizes throughout the evening.
“Feather Bingo, now it its 32nd year, has always been a good time with good food for a worthy cause,” said Lion Hazella Veillette, who has organized this year’s event. “Guests are invited to join us for the only Bingo night on the island.”
A limited number of tickets are available for a $20 donation, which includes a Turkey Dinner with all the fixins’. Bingo cards and games are sold separately. Tickets are available October 21st through November 1st from any Lions Club member or at the Bailey’s General Store Customer Service desk. Over $1500 in prizes donated by local Sanibel and Captiva businesses are to be given away during the event.
The Lions Club offers the opportunity to actively make a difference in the community, from hosting complimentary adult health screenings to collecting used eyeglasses through its specially designated Recycle for Sight boxes located at various locations on both islands. Lions are known to volunteer for many things, from club projects to community events.
“We serve where we live, as well as globally through Lions Club International, and have fun doing it,” said Lion Hazella. “Wonderful things are accomplished when you are part of the largest service organization and a generous community.”
Sanibel Captiva Lions meet the first and third Wednesday of the month with a different guest speaker once a month at the Sanibel Community House. Meetings begin with cocktails and appetizers at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. Visiting Lions and anyone interested in becoming a Lion are always welcome.
