Starbuck 4-H Club members will be calling bingo, selling cards and raising money for their community on Feb. 28 in the Starbuck Hall.

This Family Bingo Night will be the club’s sixth annual fundraiser, but the money won’t go into the club’s coffers. Club leader Val Jowett said the approximately $900 raised each year is given to the Starbuck Hall’s board as payment for the 4-H Club’s use of the hall for their meetings and events.

"This helps the club members to give back to their community," Jowett said. "Community service is part of the 4-H philosophy."

All members are required to participate in the bingo, with the president and vice-president acting as the bingo callers. Club leaders Jowett and Sharon Masse help the members to organize the evening.

Up to 100 people have attended the bingo in previous years, and Jowett said they hope to draw a large crowd this year.

Fifteen games will be played and the $2.50 admission gets you a free card. Additional cards are 50 cents each.

Jowett said the prizes are donated by local and Winnipeg businesses.

Door open at 6:30 p.m. and the first game starts at 7 p.m.
