Welcome to the Epiphany Bingo Webpage. Epiphany Bingo is played every Friday Night (except for holidays) in the Family Center. This is an all volunteer organization which therefore allows all net proceeds go to local charitable organizations. You are invited to come have fun, make new friends, and possibly win money, too! Come by yourself, or bring a friend, family members or a group, knowing the your gamecard purchase goes to local charities that need our help. Early bird games start at 7:30 PM, and regular games at 8:00 PM. Maximum cash prizes allowed by state law of $2,500 are given away every
Friday night. The final game of the evening always has a $750 Payout.
There is no smoking in the Family Center during Bingo games. Bingo is operated on a cash basis. No checks or credit/debit cards are accepted For more information on playing Bingo or joining as a volunteer, please see below.
The sale of Bingo tickets starts at 7PM, and play begins with 4 earlybird games starting at 7:30. A $4 earlybird packet gives you a game card for each of these 4 games. The regular Bingo session starts at 8. The regular session has 13 games, made up of 8 regular games and 5 special games. The packets for the regular games cost from $5 to $22, depending on how many cards you want to play at one time. The specials cost $5 per pack. So bottom line is that you can come for the 8 o’clock start, and play every game the rest of the evening for as little at $10 per person, or come to the earlybird start and play every game the rest of the evening for as little as $14 per person.
You will also need a dauber to mark your cards as you play. These can be purchased for $1 each.
We have sellers at the door that can show you what the cards look like and help you decide how many you want to play, and answer any other questions you might have.
We also have a concession area open from 7 to near the end of the evening, offering hot dogs, nachos, barbeque beef sandwiches, cheesecake, popcorn, candy, drinks and more.
Bingo Volunteers Needed
We are always looking for new volunteers to become part of one or more of our teams, for either concessions or working the Bingo floor. It is a great opportunity to meet a few of your fellow parishioners, make new friends, and participate in an organization that gives its net proceeds to local charitable organizations through the church’s Outreach Ministry.
The Bingo organization is an all volunteer group. To work the floor at Bingo, you must be at least 18 years of age, and fill out a short State form, to be submitted to the state for approval. Once this approval is received, you will be assigned to a team. We have 4 teams, so generally your schedule will be to work every fourth week. If you already have a friend on one of these teams, we will be happy to assign you to that team. If not, we will generally assign you to the team that could most use the help. Depending on what you are assigned to do, if you work on one of the bingo floor teams, you will be asked to arrive between 6:45 and 7:30, with the Bingo games generally ending by about 10. You can leave at that time, or stay a little longer and help clean up (wipe tables, sweep up a little, or put away tables and chairs).
The concession area does not require state approval for the individual volunteers, and you do not need to be 18 years of age to participate.
Earlier this year we had a concession team retire, so we are currently in the process of building a new team to fill the spot, and really need 3 to 4 more individuals for the team. The concession work generally starts at between 6:15 and 6:30, and is usually done by 9:30.
We know there will be times that you can not make your regularly scheduled session, but there will also be times when other teams may be shorthanded and you will get an opportunity to work on another night. Remember, this is an all volunteer organization, and any help you can provide is truly appreciated by all of us.
No matter what you are assigned to do, there will generally be 1 or 2 others doing the same thing as you each evening. They will be able to show you what to do, and answer any questions you might have.
