Bingo night fundraiser to benefit Boys and Girls Club

Get ready for a great night of wine and dining while celebrating and raising funds for the Boys and Girls Club of Polk County.

The 2017 Annual Bingo dinner will be Saturday, Oct. 21, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Polk County Commerce Center.

"Our friends have a great time for a good cause at our annual fund raiser," said Steve Davidson, president and CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of Deep East Texas. "This event enables our Polk County club to fund activities and programs for the hundreds of kids who utilize the club throughout the year."

The Club, which is headed by Sherry Thomas, has been growing in both numbers of students attending as well as in the number and variety of programs offered to the students.

"The funds we raise during our Bingo dinner helps ensure our team of mentors continue to provide homework assistance, physical activity, nutritious snacks and, most of all, a positive and safe place for kids throughout our community. Club participants learn so much from the mentors about leadership, responsibility and sportsmanship."
