DOP Sparta Chapter #18 Hosts Spring Fling Bingo Fundraiser

STOCKTON, CA – The Stockton Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Sparta Chapter #18, which was originally established in 1934, hosted their fourth virtual Bingo night fundraiser on April 11 via Zoom.

They had 20 participants from California, Nevada, Utah, and New York who joined in the fun. Before the games started, Bingo caller Stephanie Leles went over how many games were to be played and the rules. Four games were played, including Traditional (five in a row – either horizontal, vertical, or diagonal), Letter X, Plus symbol (+), and Coverall/Blackout. Prizes included $50 cash or $50 gift cards of their choosing. The lucky winners of the evening were Linda Belba, Aria Frangos, and two-time winner Vasiliki Katsikathas. The proceeds from Bingo night will benefit the DOP District 21 Scholarship Fund.

The Chapter was honored to have DOP Grand Governor Zone IV Linda Belba, AHEPA District 6 Executive Secretary Chris Pappis, AHEPA District 21 Governor Chris Frangos, DOP District 21 Governor Alicia Frangos, District 21 Treasurer Athena Hallock, District 21 Secretary/PDG Laurie Shines, District 21 Marshal Angie Legakis, and District 17 Governor Vasiliki Katsikathas. Also participating were District 21 PDGs Diane Peterson, Kalliope Fousekis, and Kathy Leles. Many District 21 sisters and friends also participated.

The Chapter expressed its appreciation for everyone’s support, donations, and to those who provided the prizes. It was a fun evening seeing and enjoying each other’s company via Zoom. They plan on continuing virtual Bingo night annually, so keep a lookout for next year as a different theme will be picked.
