On Sunday, November 11, Odd Fellows’ Second Sunday Bingo will benefit Unleashing the Possibilities, Inc. UTP is a private, non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation committed to building a new animal shelter in Yolo County.
The Odd Fellows Lodge is located at 415 2nd Street in Downtown Davis. Parking is free and plentiful on Sunday. Doors open at 12 noon and Bingo begins at 1 p.m. There are 15 games played, each with cash prizes for the winners, up to $250 for the final blackout bingo game. The cost to play is $20 for a packet which covers all games. There is also an economy packet for only $12. This is read Bingo authorized under State law and approved by the Davis City Council. Because Bingo is gambling, only adults may play. The Odd Fellows provide complimentary coffee and there is a snack bar with food, wine and beer.
“Come by on November 11 for some Bingo fun, and know you are providing support to UTP which will directly help the dogs and cats and little critters that find themselves in the animal shelter,” said UTP President Beth Dovi. UTP has been working with the County of Yolo and the cities of Yolo County to develop plans for a new, modern animal shelter to replace the old, outmoded shelter that has been in operation for over 50 years. UTP has committed to raising private funds through donations to help Yolo County governments pay for the new shelter.
