Beginning Friday August 21st at 7:00 pm on the virtual zoom application, the Woman’s Club of South Pasadena will be holding weekly BINGO Fundraisers to benefit their scholarship program.  Zoom is not needed on your computer.  A link will be provided. Money prizes will be awarded. The Club plans to continue virtual Bingo games each week, same time, same place. Once players have registered and paid, a link to the game will be provided.  Participants can decide if they want to receive Bingo cards in the mail ($2.00 extra) or have them sent by email to print as needed.   

Four games will be played each evening.  The price ranges will be: $15.00 to buy in and receive 4 cards; $12.00 for a set of 4 more.  Players who purchase 8 tickets will then be able to buy additional sets of 4 cards for $10.00 when 8 have already been purchased.  Registration is on a first come first served basis and must be made 5 days in advance (to allow for mailing of cards) or within 24 hours if requesting Bingo cards by email.   

Members of the community are encouraged to support $ Dollars for Scholars $ and enjoy a night of virtual bingo.  The event is limited to 100 participants including those running the program. For additional information and to register, please email or call 626-437-6251

Sherry Plotkin, Ways and Means Chair for WCSP is coordinating the event.  She says “we had to find new ways and means for raising money for our scholarships.  And what better way to bring our supporters together than a fun challenging game of virtual bingo.”

The virtual bingo Fundraiser will be in lieu of the Club’s annual Fashion Show, popular Holiday Boutique and other Woman’s club events that raise money for scholarships for graduating SPHS seniors.  WCSP has been closed since the outbreak of the corona virus and there has been no income from special events or rental of the clubhouse.  The club is also unable to hold their monthly luncheon program which generates money for club activities. WCSP is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization founded in 1899.  The scholarships are one of many WCSP philanthropic activities and outreach.
