The Kitchener Ringette Association is one of the many non-profit organizations that participates regularly in running charity bingos. The funds raised through these bingos are a significant factor in covering our annual operating costs (ice, referees, etc). Without these funds, each child’s registration fee would go up considerably. Over the past year we have experienced difficulty at times in fulfilling our commitments to operate the bingo…..WE CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE OUR SPOT!!!
The proceeds from the bingo benefit all children registered with KRA thus the responsibility to operate the bingos should rest with all as well.
Each family will be required to volunteer for ONE BINGO PER CHILD playing ringette with Kitchener. Those that register prior to June 15th for the early registration rate will be able to select a date to volunteer, provided that date is not full already. Those who have not fulfilled their time or who register at start-up weekend will be assigned a date. We currently have only dates available until the end of August, as confirmation from the bingo hall for subsequent times has not been received. In the past we have had dates changed and so we would prefer to not run into re-scheduling issues, so once confirmation is received further dates will be released. Should you be unable to work the date you signed up for or were assigned it will be your responsibility to find a replacement. KRA will have a list of volunteers willing to cover (if they are available) at a fee to you of $50.00. These funds must be put towards a team within KRA, likely the team to which the volunteer is affiliated with.
All of the confirmed KRA bingo dates are posted on the Bingo page of our website. Beside each date shows the number of volunteers still required for that date. Once you know which date(s) you would like to volunteer, please email Kinga Cormier, Bingo Coordinator at email@example.com. Include in your email your child’s name. Kinga will confirm back to you with your date(s).
KRA runs a bingo every second Saturday from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm at the KW Gaming Center on Krug Street, Kitchener. (Krug St. plaza)
