Magical BINGO

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

An almost magical thing happened at the Humane Society BINGO event this year ... the University of Okoboji Cheer Leaders came to our event at the Pavillion, took the stage, and let loose with a resounding cheer -- the crowd of over 200 really got into it -- answering each called letter with enthusiasm! What a great start to a fun event for a great cause! We captured some of it on video which anyone can see by going to our website: www.humanesocietyofnwia.com. Scroll to the bottom of the home page - just click on the Bingo picture and enjoy the short video.

Thanks go out to the many people who helped to make our annual BINGO event a huge success. Those who donated prizes and gift certificates, those who worked the event, those who made and donated refreshments, and all of those who work so hard to make the University of Okoboji Winter Games the best place to be in Iowa on the last weekend of January! We are grateful for the dedication, the good times, and the opportunity to participate!
