New Orleans Real Estate News: November 2008

Let's Talk Turkey...Bingo!

Next week the kids are out of school and the grocery stores will be packed with folks hunting and gathering all of the things they need to prepare too much food for too few people. For many, it's a stressful time, trying to do everything just so. I don't know about you, but I usually need a break from all of the preparations and look forward to some time out of the house just to have a little fun.

What could be more fun than Turkey Bingo? turkey

The Sunshine Club of Algiers is sponsoring it's annual Turkey Bingo on Tuesday, 11/25/2008 in the Holy Name of Mary School cafeteria in Algiers Point.

Since the 1930's, the Sunshine Club has distributed holiday baskets to between 150-200 local families in need. The big, annual spaghetti dinner was canceled this year due to Gustav, so Turkey Bingo needs your support!

Winners of the bingo games get their very own turkey to take home and it's a wonderful way to spend a little quality time with friends, family and neighbors. Here's a thought - if you win, the Sunshine Club will gladly take that turkey as a donation towards the Christmas baskets that will be distributed on December 20th.

The first game starts at 7:30 pm and bingo cards are only $1.50 each. Watch out for those power players that can play a table full of cards at once! Kids, as always, are welcome and there will be food, drinks and sweets available along with a parade of prizes and a 50/50 raffle.

For more information, contact Gary Laigast at (504) 450-7460.

Happy Thanksgiving!
