March Madness Bingo/Raffle Extravaganza at Chelem!

Come out and play with the Chelem Elves at the “March Madness Bingo/Raffle Extravaganza” on Tuesday, March, 3rd !

We let you decide how many cards and how many games you want to play. If you want to donate 150 pesos for an entire night of bingo including 4 regular games and the blackout game, we’ll let you do that!

If you just want to play one or two games or save all your pesos for the blackout game, we’ll let you do that too!

Cards for regular bingo will be 25 pesos each, and the cards for the blackout round will be 50 pesos each.

You can play as many cards as you want and if you want to keep playing after the scheduled 3 games and blackout are over, we’ll accommodate that also. We’re easy. It’s all up to you.

As usual, half the bingo money goes to the toy drive fund and half goes to the lucky winners.

Doors open at 5:00 pm and so you can come early and grab your raffle tickets and drinks.
