Cumberland bingo nights return – online and in-person

Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) Bingo Nights are back this fall both online and in person.

“Online bingo has built up such a community that we couldn’t let it go,” says Kate Ashton, program co-ordinator for CCSS. “That being said, we missed the community gathering that in-person bingo creates, so we decided to run them both!”

Wednesday night is dual bingo night in Cumberland. Online bingo starts at 6 p.m. on Facebook Live. To purchase a bingo card for online bingo, go to the CCSS Facebook Page. Cards are $10 and good for all five games that are played.

In-person bingo is held at the Cumberland Legion, 2770 Dunsmuir Ave.

The doors open at 7 p.m. and the games start at 7:30. There will be 10 regular games and two specials. Cash only.

This will be the seventh year of CCSS co-ordinating Bingo Nights in Cumberland.

All proceeds from this weekly fund-raiser support CCSS programming such as the Healthy Food Program, free after-school activities, Mamacentric, drop-in Youth Centre and the Food Share (the Village’s Food Bank).

Over the past year, CCSS has worked hard to adapt programming to continue to meet the needs of the community.

After the many changes we made last year, we are excited to be able to once again run in-person events.
