One year ago it looked like bingo was about to go away.
It had been replaced by poker for many organization’s primary fund-raising opportunities. Adn the ones that were continuing were seeing sharp declines in attendance.
But, don’t look now it appears that bingo is back in Delaware!
Two fraternal organizations have announced their weekly bingo offerings.
Delaware Eagles #376 – Every Wednesday with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. and the first-number called at 7 p.m. They advertise a “progressive flashboard jackpot $1000”. The Eagles is located downtown at 127 East William Street.
Delaware Elks – Every Tuesday and Sunday at their new location at 1502 West William Street on Delaware’s westside. The doors open at 4:30 p.m. with a lightning round at 6 p.m. and regular bingo begins at 7 p.m. They offer food service and instants all evening long with proceeds shared with community service organizations.
So get out there ad lay Bing in Delaware!
