Davis Odd Fellows Bingo

The Davis Odd Fellows are part of a world-wide organization. Our focus is community support and charitable giving. We have provided significant financial support over the years to local organizations as diverse as Pine Tree Gardens (to assist the program supporting persons with mental illness), the Concilio of Yolo County (for scholarships for Hispanic youth), Martin Luther King Day Committee (to assist in their annual event celebrating this great American), the Yolo County Multi-disciplinary Interview Center (helping abused children), Suicide Prevention, Yolo Hospice, The Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center, Communicare Health Centers, and many others.

Davis Odd Fellows Lodge
415 Second Street
Davis, CA 95616
Bingo Event History: The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge has been sponsoring monthly Bingo events at its Lodge located at 415 Second Street since 2007. Each month, the proceeds from Bingo game sales, after expenses, are turned over to the charity group selected as the beneficiary of the Bingo event. For the past few years, the annual Bingo event proceeds paid to Bingo charity groups have exceeded $7,000.
Bingo Event Day: The Sunday of each Bingo event, the Lodge doors are opened at noon, with the Bingo event beginning at 1 p.m. and ending around 4 p.m. Typically, fifteen (15) games are played at the Bingo event. Players can choose from an Easy Pack ($12 each) or a Value Pack ($20 each) when playing Bingo, which allows for an affordable and fun experience while helping raise funds for a local charity group. Bingo daubers can be purchased for $1 each. There are cash prizes for the winners of each game. In addition, players can purchase “Pull Tabs” which provide “instant winners” up to $100. Raffle prizes are awarded at breaks during the Bingo event. The final “back-out” bingo game has a cash prize of $250. There will be a snack bar open throughout the Bingo event, with affordable food, snacks and drinks. Coffee is also available at no charge.
Players: Each charity group is strongly encouraged to get at least ten (10) players to come to players to come play Bingo on their Bingo event date. While there are “regular” players who come each month, the more people that your group gets to come, the more your group will benefit. Please note that all players must be 18 years old!
Pre-Sale Tickets: Each group may pre-sell tickets to their Bingo event, with the money you collect being turned into the Odd Fellows. This pre-sale money will be returned to you in a check shortly after the Bingo event, along with your group’s share of the proceeds from the event. Of course, it’s best if you get supporters to come to the Bingo event, but if a supporter buy pre-sale tickets and don’t come to the event, your group will still get the pre-sale money.
Raffle Prizes: Each group needs to bring at least six (6) raffle prizes to the Bingo event. The prizes do not have to be extravagant or expensive; we recommend prizes valued between $10 and $30 each. Examples of prizes are gift baskets based on holiday or other themes, gift certificates donated by local businesses, or bottles of wine or other alcoholic beverages. If your group has an event coming up and would like to donate tickets as a prize, that is completely appropriate. If you have any questions about raffle prizes, or would like some ideas from past groups, please give us a call.
Clean-up: The beneficiaries will help with cleaning up the paper bags and wiping down all of the tables. The OSA will put away the tables and chairs.
