Special bingo night for Mike Biaggini

Staff Reports

The Gardnerville council of the Knights of Columbus are dedicating Friday’s bingo night to Douglas County Sheriff’s Captain Mike Biaggini Cancer Fund.The net proceeds from this event will be donated to help pay for his nonmedical expenses related to his California trips for treatment. Grand Knight Chuck Ripoli hopes that the public will support this event so that it will provide a significant contribution towards meeting these expenses. This is Biaggini’s third time fighting colon cancer in the last five years.

The Knights of Columbus hosts Knights Bingo Night on the second and fourth Fridays of each month at the St. Gall Pastoral Center, 1343 Centerville Lane, Gardnerville. These events, which are open to everyone over the age of 21, have provided funds to support various community projects and other public needs. Doors open at 6 p.m. and play starts at 7 p.m. Players purchase a $20 game pack that includes a three-card warm-up, 10 games, one raffle ticket and one progressive blackout game card. Additional blackout game cards can be purchased separately. The progressive blackout pays a minimum of $500 if a bingo is reached within a specific number of calls. A “big bonus” progressive blackout has been added to Bingo Knights which pays $1,199. Food and drinks will be available for purchase starting at 6 p.m. Knights volunteers will also provide free popcorn, coffee and table snacks during the evening.
