Today 120 people attended the bingo fundraiser at the Elks Lodge on Mission Trail. With the special games included there were about 20 rounds of bingo. 

All the proceeds went to Relay For Life which is a non profit that raises money to fight cancer. There will be a 24 hour walking marathon Saturday, October 10, 2015 at Canyon Lake Middle School.

Wildomar has a several teams participating. 

Among them is Bob and Pat's Posse, Captain Chrissy Rohlmeier; 
VFW Post 1508 Veterans for a Cure, Captain Cari Gardner; 
Scouting for a Cure, Captain Luanne Vicnaire; 
and the Wildomar Walkers, Captain Bridgette Moore which brought 22 people the the bingo fundraiser. 

It was a great afternoon that started about 12:30, with bingo beginning at 1:00pm, and finished a little after 4:00pm. After the first nine games of bingo there was an intermission where about 10 prize baskets were raffled off. 

Hands down the highlight of the day was during the final game of bingo, which had a payout of $250. Wildomar City Clerk Debbie Lee won the game, and she not only demonstrated the proper way of shouting BINGO! but then she promptly turned around and donated all $250 back to Relay For Life.

There is still time to participate by either walking or sponsoring/donating.

Wildomar Rap can be viewed from anywhere in the world, but I can't imagine the people from Upper Volta really wondering if the city has been sued again. It's more of a local thing.
