How the charity partnership works
One Sunday per month, Davis Odd Fellows Bingo! opens the doors to the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge and hosts Bingo! for our community. Members of the Lodge volunteer their time to run the games. We sell bingo packs, additional bingo cards, and pull tabs (instant winners) to the players. The money from these sales goes toward the bingo cash prizes that are given out during bingo play. Payouts for the day are approximately $1000. Any money in excess of the daily payouts goes to the Charity Partner. It is that simple.
