“Virtual Bingo is easy and anyone can play from anywhere,” the Chapter noted via email. “We played seven games, starting with a regular game, then the letter ‘P’ for St. Patrick’s Day on to a coverall, a ‘Hat’, a coverall and two more regular games. We had 10 winners who received gift cards from Panera Bread, Chick-fil-A, Target, Amazon, and Dunkin Donuts. ‘Mona the Magnificent,’ our Bingo caller still challenged us with two different games. We enjoyed every one of them!”
