Bingo fans gather to play. According to organizers, the 150 seat event sold out before games began. Proceeds benefited the Emmaus Historical Society capital campaign and the Emmaus Main Street Partners.
Gertrude Anderson and her daughter Ruth David, both of Macungie, are among the bingo players. Anderson also plays every Saturday at Macungie Memorial Park.
In addition to bingo, the event includes a basket raffle, a door prize drawing and a 50/50 drawing.
Among the baskets featured is a baseball-themed offering.
