RAINBOW BINGO 101

Rainbow Bingo 

Our Rainbow Bingo events are such fun filled evenings. You will have a great time! People come back time and again, so they sell out typically months in advance. Since this is a gambling event with liquor it is a 21 and over event. Groups can be all sizes.  You just need to reserve your seats by going online and buying tickets.  Ticket prices do not include game cards. Those must be purchased separately at the door for $6.00 with cash. We cannot accept credit card payments for game sheets. You either purchase all your tickets at once or each individual purchases their own with a note saying they want to sit with a particular group. Only catch is if tickets sell out before everyone gets their reservations in. All seats are assigned and groups sit together. Tickets are $20/each for non-members. Card-holder member tickets are $12/each.

Sylvia O’Stayformore is our Drag Queen hostess /entertainer and we have 2 additional fabulous Drag Queens each time as the assistants. 

Throughout the evening there are opportunities to purchase raffle tickets, bid on auction items, play special games and actually win cash! We try to keep this as a CASH event as much as possible. We ask that you bring small denomination bills, since it is difficult to make change for large bills with so many people. Credit cards are taken for bar tabs and the larger auction items.

Beer/Wine/basic cocktails are $5, and jello shots, a $1.  We serve wonderful food provided by our Volunteer chef which includes a menu of gourmet specials such as mini tacos, Chinese chicken salad wrap, bbq sliders, or possibly a chowder bowl with a Caesar salad. Additionally, there is always a rotating menu of tasty treats and munchies. ($4-$6)

The doors open at 6pm and we try to start at 7pm sharp. It’s typically over around 9:30pm. We have a large 3-hour free parking lot behind the center. (Enter on 42nd Ave SW) We ask that you arrive at 6pm, since the earlier you can get here, the sooner you can get checked in, get a chance to review your bingo materials, order something to eat, enjoy a drink from the bar and sit back to watch the mayhem begin! 

The initial reservation includes your admission. We sell bingo game cards separately at the door for $6.00. These are not included in the ticket price per gambling commission rules. This must be paid by cash or check only. No credit cards can be accepted for these. They will sell additional bonus bingo cards for the Big Jackpots for $1 during the intermissions. Ink daubers are needed to play and sold at the door for $3.

Each month we have a theme.   Some people dress up in costumes, others don’t.  It’s just part of the fun!
