The Kiwanis Club of Carson Valley hosts its annual family-friendly Turkey Bingo on Nov. 20 at the CVIC Hall, 1604 Esmeralda Ave., in Minden. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. followed by three bingo sessions at noon, 3 p.m., and 6 p.m.

Slide-window bingo cards have been used in the past, but this year’s event features paper cards at a cost of 2 for $1; daubers are available for $1 each. There is no limit to the number of games an individual may play at one time, and games will last until all turkeys are awarded. A special grand prize will be given away at the end of each bingo session.

During each bingo session, raffle tickets will be sold for a chance to win prizes donated by local businesses and Carson Valley Kiwanis members.

Complimentary popcorn and coffee will be served, with hot dogs, chips, water and soft drinks available for purchase.

Kiwanis is an international service organization open to men and women who want personal involvement in the leadership and improvement of their communities; their primary emphasis is focused on helping youth grow and succeed. The Kiwanis Club of Carson Valley hosts numerous fundraisers throughout the year to support the Kiwanis scholarship fund and other worthy initiatives that benefit the wellbeing of local children and families.

Member meetings are held every Thursday at 6:30 a.m. at the C.O.D. Casino, 1593 Esmeralda Ave., in Minden. All are welcome to attend. For information, including how to join the Kiwanis, call 775-339-8882.
