Dog Days of Summer Are Upon Us!

B-I-N-G-O Night Was A Blast!

We'd like to thank the folks who attended our very first BINGO as we raised $605 for the animals!  Eight games were played and we gave out eight prizes to the lucky winners.  The prizes were:

1) Picture frame and ISE magnet
2) Popcorn Maker
3) Cook Book
4) $25 gift card to either Target, Home Depot, Maggianos, or Chli's
5) ISE t-shirt
6) ISE backpack
7) Tiger or leapord print blanket (donated by Jodi Payson)
8) Voucher for 1 person (worth $125) to play in our golf tournament (Donated by Glenda Baugher--HUGE THANK YOU!!!)

The room we rented for the night was located right next to the bar. The hotel provided us with a waiter who took everyone's food and drink orders. For each game we made the theme of the bingo card ISE related (For example: for game 1 everyone had to make a T for tiger on their bingo card... L, B, C, and S. The rest consisted of an X, the perimeter of the card, and the last game was blackout. 

Everyone seemed to have had a great time and were eager to know when the next Bingo night was going to take place.  A big thank you to Kim Morris for arranging the event location for us and to Jodi's friend Hailey for helping her with the event!  Two lions paws up and roars of approval to Jodi Payson for putting this event together!  We will keep you posted when we schedule or next B-I-N-G-O night for adults only and perhaps one for the entire family.
