FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The 5th Virtual Bingo with Daughters of Penelope Narcissus Chapter 289 was held on March 12. The them was St. Patrick’s Day for a little luck from the Irish with everyone looking for the pot of gold.

The Chapter had a great turnout with 33 players, three new players from Canada, three from the West Coast of Florida, and two from Central Florida in addition to players from New York, New Jersey, and their local players.

“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!”

With this game, the Chapter was able to bring their total donated to St. Demetrios Church to over $2,000. “A great way to have fun, make friends, help our community and donate to our church,” the Chapter noted, adding that “we will play again, hopefully in May! We hope you can join us.”
