VillaSport in Colorado Springs is hosting a bingo night Saturday to raise money for Make-A-Wish Colorado.
This is the 10th year of the event, which draws families from across the city. Villa Sport covers all of the costs, so all the money raised goes toward the Colorado chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to make a child’s dream come true.
Last year’s wish recipient battled aplastic anemia. She received life-saving bone marrow from her sister, and she got to share her wish with her sister as they had fun at the happiest place on Earth–Disney World.
“I’ve never been there before, and so I just thought, ‘well, other people have been there, so I think I would like to go there,'” she said. “I saw Disney characters, went on a lot of rides.”
The bingo night fundraiser is happening Saturday at the athletic club at Powers Boulevard and Woodmen Road. Seating begins at 5:30, and bingo starts at 6:30. There’s a suggested donation of $7 to play bingo.
