BJ’s Bingo has been sponsoring a “Kid’s Day Session” starting with the year we opened in 1980. As time has passed it has grown in popularity and evolved over the years.
Two things remain consistent. The children play actual bingo games for free, and we do drawings for prizes for them as well.
We have always had dedicated staff work with the children every year. Diligently teaching, and encouraging participation, while keeping them safe. This year we went with a new idea, and created our first Family Invitational Day, with Moms, Dads, Grandmas, or Grandpas invited as well. This new concept was very well received, customers qualified by attendance throughout the year, bringing up to 3 children in to play for free as well as themselves on the Day of the Family Invitational.
We welcomed everyone in with a Special Schedule featuring $200 games with the last game paying $500, and seventy five drawings for great prizes, to include bikes and Xboxes. The Session paid $10,000 Total in cash and prizes.
To entertain our early bird guests we featured a crafts game with bags filled with fun items for our families to create a family flag to take home. Our special child friendly menu with adjusted pricing, and the piece’ de’ resistance’ a unique candy bar, by devoted staff from Mr. Ray’s Café.
Everyone had a great time, and to ensure that all of our young guests left feeling like winners our parting gift this year was a drawstring backpack with an emoji motif on it.
Here’s to another 36 years of serving our customers and their families the best bingo ever.
