April 28th 2019
We will be holding Bingo every other Sunday starting June 9th.
Also if you come in on your Birthday you receive a $20.00 FREE packet. So come on down and lets celebrate your Birthday.
Based on feedback from our first bingo we have adjusted our prices. In doing so our payouts have gone down, but still have the 88% total payout rate. So now you can play all games for $25.00 and have all cookie jars for $29.00. We also have adjusted our prices in the food area as well. We appreciate any feedback both positive and negative.
Other dates will be posted as we see how turnout is. Our Goal is to do this every Sunday provided we have your support.
Doors will open at 12:00 PM Early Bird Games will start at 1:00 PM. Normal games start at 1:30 PM
Location at the Bellaire Volunteer Fire Department

It is our hope that everyone has fun, enjoy themselves, and most of all win Big. As the attendance grows we will add more special events during Bingo. We have a lot of special games and events planned throughout the next year. So come on down and support your Bellaire Volunteer Fire Department.
