Thank You to Street Fair Bingo Tent Super Bings Game Sponsors

The “Hot Bingo and Cold Beer Tent” at the June 27th Hickory Hills Street Fair was, once again, a huge success. The tent was busy with bingo players having fun in the parking lot donated by Gary Bukovsky State Farm Insurance at 9253 South Roberts Road.

In addition to being a fun event, the bingo tent was also a fundraiser for deserving local organizations. After expenses, net proceeds were $1,609.77, which were evenly divided among the Sertoma Speech and Hearing Center, the Hickory Hills Youth Baseball & Softball Association and the Hills Chamber of Commerce.

Alderman Tom McAvoy (3rd), who coordinates the bingo tent operation, thanked the dozens of volunteers who “pitched in” to help run the games and the work the beer concession.

In addition to the regular “split the pot” payoffs, bingo game winners were also awarded “bonus” prizes donated by a host of local businesses. The bonus prizes (which totaled over $5,200.00 in value) included cash, gift certificates and products. The Grand Prize Winner (for the final “coverall” bingo game) received $750 plus in game pots and prizes.

Mayor Mike Howley, Ald. McAvoy and the City Council extend their appreciation to the businesses listed below, which donated bonus prizes.
