B 6, I 25, N 38, G 50, O 69

If you didn't make it out to bingo Thursday night you missed a great time! I haven't laughed that hard in forever! Bingo was something I was sure I could win at, but I was wrong. People came out in droves for this event! I was really surprised!! Nikki said that people started to arrive around 3 p.m. and it wasn't suppose to start until 6 p.m. They told her that they wanted to make sure they could get a seat! The cards were 3 for $13 and then $5 for the special card. The special card was for Southern Charm Portraits, Sophie Mac Photography and $120 worth of fireworks from Donald Ray. We played 3 separate games for these prizes. Melissa got the Sophie Mac prize!

The most surprising thing was that there were actually people cheating. Well of course I can't prove it or anything, but I am pretty sure! This one table was a lady, her husband and her daughter. At the beginning of the night all three of them were yelling bingo every 5 minutes! I am serious, I know the lady won 5 times, her husband at least 1 and the daughter 3 times! They were winning games back to back! I think Nikki saw that everyone was getting a little irratated so she got someone to start verifing when anyone called bingo. Guess what? Suddenly they stopped yelling bingo!!! Then a little later the little girl yelled bingo but didn't have it.

Believe it or not I was actually the last person to win a game! That isn't the saddest part. The saddest part is that I won with Ali's card. Ali left about 3o minutes before us. She gave her cards to me and Tim. I finally won!!!! Thanks Ali!

Nikki said that they raised $2500! This was a great fund raiser! We are going to do it again the night of Relay.
