Akili hosted their inaugural Turkey Bingo on Thursday, November 16th. Over 100 members of the community gathered to play bingo, all in hopes of winning a frozen turkey. Twenty games of bingo were played, giving individuals the opportunity to win 20 frozen turkeys. Up for grabs were also bags of “fixings” for those winners who had already received a turkey.
Principal Allison Lowe was excited for Akili to host this event, “This event gave parents the opportunity to spend a fun night out with their children, it helped provide Thanksgiving dinners to over twenty families, and also raised money for scholars to have exciting field trip opportunities,” she said. “We are looking forward to doing this again as a ham bingo event in the spring.”
A special thank you to all of the individuals who donated to help make this event possible, especially Breaux Mart, Langenstein’s, and Zara’s Little Giant Supermarket for their frozen turkey donations.
