B-I-N-G-O in the Front Row


By Tonya Martin

Al Ansar Daughters of the Nile celebrated the Luck ‘O the Irish on Friday, March 10 th with their first ever Bingo Dinner. Eighty People came out to have Corned Beef, Cabbage, Potatoes, Bread, a 10’ display of Dessert and try their luck with the numbers. The first seven games were played for various prizes including a carwash package, Margarita Machine for Tailgating, Pina Colada Blender, Gift Cards, Air Fryer and several holiday items. The final game was played for $250!

Chad Knight was the caller so you know it was “colorful”. Chad had great assist by Oriental Guide, Stephen Schram and the two of them proceeded to rhyme ever number with a word. The room was full of chatter and laughing before the first number was even called! Towards the end the callers were reaching pretty far to get the rhymes made – but the participants helped out with all kinds of suggestions! The $250 had to be split between Marie Gillespie and Tammy Schram who both covered all numbers.

Our hope is to expand our organization with ladies directly tied to a Shriner to help us in our fundraising efforts. This event raised over $2,000 before expenses and will go a long way to providing special projects to our local Shriners Children’s. If you are interested in becoming a Daughter of the Nile, please contact me at We are looking forward to hosting more fun events as part of the effort to unite with our Temple Ladies committed to the Sisterhood of Women and all the benefits that come from the same.
