Area brides-to-be, plus their friends and families, can play bingo for prizes while benefiting a great cause through The Friends of Vander Veer Brides Bingo, a fundraiser Feb. 22 in Davenport.
Tickets are on sale now for the event at the Hotel Blackhawk, 200 E. 3rd St., a major event sponsor. The event will be held in the hotel's Gold Room. Doors will open at 1, with the bingo at 2 p.m.
Pre-sale tickets will be available for $15 each through Feb. 20. No tickets will be sold Feb. 21, but they will be available at the door for $20 the day of the event. Seating is limited to 300 people.
About 10 rounds of bingo will be played, and the winner of each round will win a prize that can be used at a wedding. In addition to the hotel, sponsors are Burke Cleaners and QCWeddings.com.
The grand prize rounds are an additional $5 per person. The prizes include wedding jewelry, a limo package, hotel stays, spa packages and much more. There will be door prizes throughout, and a cash bar and concessions will be available.
