Every December for the past few years Iâ€™ve been asked to call a game of bingo at Potawatomi Hotel and Casino to raise money and awareness for its Heart of Canal program. Since 1994, the program raised almost $15 million dollars for hundreds of charities.
OnMilwaukee partners with a non-profit group every year and this year itâ€™s the Betty Brinn Childrenâ€™s Museum. OnMilwaukeeâ€™s Jeff Sherman describes the program and sponsorship in this blog.Â
Personally, I love being involved in this event â€“ not only because it gives large sums of money to extremely important organizations, but also because, it turns out, I really enjoy calling bingo.
As a person who digs performing, I find calling bingo to be a fun performance of sorts. And I'm always awarded with a souvenir bingo ball after my shift.
Consider attending a bingo game for charity. Donâ€™t forget your good luck charms. Trolls, rabbitsâ€™ feet, those waving cats â€¦ Whatever you think has the magic mojo.
Hereâ€™s a 45-second video of me bingo-ing. I have a calling for bingo calling, donâ€™t ya think?
