On July 10th Vida McKenzie Community Center held a first ever Drive-Thru Bingo event. Of the 92 participants, there were many local residents but also folks from as far away as San Francisco (this couple actually won the grand prize!) and Grants Pass. Over $4000 was raised to help rebuild the Community Center!
The Board of Directors wishes to thank everyone who made this fundraiser so much fun and such a success.
Special thanks to Kendall Cares, Vinnie’s Smok’n BBQ, Patsy’s Stage Stop, McKenzie River Lavender, Leaburg Library, McKenzie Organic Redneck Farm, Everyone’s Market, Eagle Rock Lodge, Takoda’s, Blue Sky Market and McKenzie Community Track for their generous support of VMCC’s Comeback Campaign.
The volunteers who worked hard to make the day possible agreed Drive-Thru Bingo should be an annual event!
