Ottawa DOP Bingo Night Honors Community Icon Lost to COVID

April 11, 2021

OTTAWA, CANADA – The Ottawa Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Euphrosyne Chapter #292, which was originally established in 1957 and reactivated in 1985, hosted their third virtual Bingo Night fundraiser, open to all friends and families, on March 28, via Zoom.

The Chapter hosted 23 eager players, from Canada and the U.S., who joined the fun on a rainy Ottawa night. The charming Bingo caller was Sister Pauline Pavlounis, who kept players on the edge of their seats as she called out the letters and numbers, and effervescent Chapter President Cathy Pantieras kept the music and dancing going with her inimitable style and energy. Four games were played, Outside Square, Letter X, Four Corners, and Letter T. Prizes awarded to the winners were $50 cash each. The Bingo fundraiser proceeds will benefit the Chapter’s ongoing ventilator equipment donation fund to The Ottawa Hospital, honoring and remembering Andreas Andreadis and saving lives. Andreas was a dedicated community member and church chanter who tragically lost his battle with COVID last April.

The Chapter was honored and happy to have AHEPA District 6 Secretary and Bingo player extraordinaire Chris Pappis with them. This is also the home Chapter of DOP Grand Governor Zone 5 Margaret Dritsas. She is the liaison to Districts 5, 23, 24 and 26.

The 2020-2021 officers of the Ottawa Chapter are President Cathy Pantieras, Vice President Jenny Papadopoulos, Corresponding Secretary Ivonne Hatzitheodosiou, Treasurer Felecha Eftaxias, and Recording Secretary Montse Bouvier.

The Chapter greatly appreciates everyone’s donations and support for this special cause and noted via email “it was fun spending the evening together playing Bingo and we look forward to the next time! Wishing you all health and Kali Anastasi!”
