Thank you everyone for the awesome response to our callout for bingo workers. We now have a list of over 50 volunteers. But we could always use more. If you could support your community league by putting your name on the Bingo Volunteer list, please call Alma at 780 469-2019 or email at email@example.com.
If you would like to put your name down for any of the above dates, call me (Julia) at 780-476-2992.
Please request your dates two weeks prior to the bingo date. This will give me time to fill the bingo if spaces are still available.
SHIFTS ARE USUALLY AS FOLLOWS
Afternoon 10:30am – 3:30pm
Late Night 9:30pm-Midnight
Bingos generate a portion of the Community League’s revenue each year. KCL bingos will be held at Parkway Bingo Hall, 8775 – 51 Avenue.
Volunteers that work a bingo may receive a $50.00 voucher for afternoon or evening shifts and an extra $25.00 for late night bingos.
Volunteers that work 5 hour shifts receive a free meal and beverage. Those who work a 2 hour late night shift may have a free light snack or beverage. Bingo workers may be compensated for babysitting only if required in order for them to work the bingo, and only if an outside the home or non-family babysitter.
Did you know? Often volunteers say they will work a bingo and either do not show up or call to cancel at the last minute. Not only does this cause the Bingo Chairperson a lot of stress, but it also costs the community league money with a fine if the minimum number of workers required by the gaming commission are not present. Please do your community a favour and keep your commitment. If you cannot work due to a true emergency, please try to find your own replacement and do not be AWOL!
If you can volunteer to work a bingo, please call Julia @ 476-2992. Leave a message with your name, callback number and the date you can volunteer.
Can’t work but like to play? Come down to the Parkway Bingo Hall at 8775 – 51 Avenue and help support Kenilworth.
