Bingo Prize Donation/Basket Raffle Donations:

We are looking for various items such as gift cards to any national chain like Target, Wal-mart, Sears or restaurants such as Pizza-hut, McDonald's, Friendly, etc. or any type of item/donation would be helpful to use as bingo prizes and basket "fillers." Our Bingo for a Cure event holds over 900 people, so any quantity large or small would be appreciated!

Here is a list of different ways you can help find a cure for FOP

Monetary Donations – We are accepting monetary donations in any amount. No donation is too small! These donations will be used to help cover any costs we may encounter for the Bingo Event. If you make a monetary donation your name will be recognized in the Bingo program for your generosity.

Raffle Baskets – We are in need of baskets to raffle off, you can fill the basket(s) with anything you choose. In the past, some donors made up their basket using a theme; such as, a Crayola basket, a dog lovers basket, an Italian themed basket. The basket can be put together by you or just drop the purchased contents off and we will assemble a basket on your behalf. The basket can be made up of any items, size and value. Another way to contribute to the basket raffle is by donating a professional service. For example, painters can donate painting a room or a hair stylist can donate a cut and style, etc.

Gift Cards – Gift cards are needed for restaurants, Itunes, Kohl’s, Wal-Mart, Wawa, etc. Any denomination is welcome. These items will used in our Basket Raffle.

Table Prizes – We are in need of items and/or gift cards in groups of 24. There are 24 people per table,
it is important that we receive the table prizes in groups of 24. The items should be identical in value.
A $10 amount is suggested. We have learned from previous years that individual door prizes are too time consuming. Therefore, we have come up with the idea of handing out table prizes! Each table has a number and when a winning table number is picked everyone seated at that table will win the prize. For example, last year many restaurants donated gift cards for table prizes, one being Red Robin. So when the winning table number is drawn, everyone at the table received a $10 Red Robin gift card. This turned out to be a favorite for most businesses.

Businesses should be aware of this cost-effective advertising opportunity! This will be the most rewarding way to advertise your business this year and help change lives!!!! We anticipate a crowd of 800 people again this year. Space is limited so don’t miss out on getting your business recognized!

Bingo Game Sponsorship – We are in need of individuals/businesses to sponsor our “Cash Game Prize Money.” Every game of Bingo played has a “Cash” prize. There are a total of 25 games that need to be sponsored. There are 20Regular games with a cash prize of $200 and 5 Special games with a cash prize
of $250. Our Grand Prize game will have a cash prize of $1,000. If you sponsor a game your name will be printed in the program and announced during the bingo to recognize your generosity. Please contact Chrissy Flexer to reserve a game. Games are sponsored on a first come first serve basis!

There are many other ways to donate to the Bingo, it could be as simple as attending the Bingo, selling tickets, hanging flyers at work, soliciting donations, baking for the bake sale, or just spreading the word to raise awareness! Or we are always in need of Staples/Office Depot gift cards for year-round operational needs. Keep in mind we are still looking for a “celebrity” spokesperson.

Any questions you may have feel free to contact Chrissy Flexer at 610-349-8479 or you can email info@BingoForACure.com. Please make checks payable to: “Joshua’s Future of Promises!” All donations can be mailed or dropped off at:
