Eighteen games of bingo were played, raising $3,000 which was donated in three $1,000 checks to the Alexandria Special Olympics, Elder Network and the Outreach Food Shelf.
“Everyone had a great time” said Darrell Staley, past president for the Alexandria Lions Club. "We give a special thanks to the VFW who helped make this evening possible."
