Sporting Columbia BINGO program

Our mission of building soccer requires us to ask our parents to contribute between 20-30 hours of work to the club each year. Most hours are spent running Saturday night BINGO at the Cosmopolitan Club. Other hours are spent sorting uniforms, general up keep on Pride Park, & other team duties. We also ask that each family contribute 1 ½ hours at each of our tournaments, one in the fall and one in the spring. All of this time helps us build a successful tournament and a stronger soccer community.

BINGO is a good source of income for the Sporting Columbia. The proceeds from bingo pay for our facility costs, as well as contributing to many other operating costs. Instead of having to sell multiple fundraising products throughout the year you only have to work a maximum of 24 hours or 4 BINGO slots per year (Aug 1 to July 31). At this time BINGO is our only Club fundraiser. Volunteer hours are finalized after tryouts and teams are formed.
