CORN­WALL, On­tario – It’s time to bring out the Bingo cards as Tues­day, Sept. 11 marks the be­gin­ning of 10 months of Kins­men TV Bingo.

Since 1933, the Kins­men Club of Corn­wall has served the needs of the com­mu­nity and fundraised for var­i­ous lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions.

TV Bingo will of­fer weekly and monthly prizes, rang­ing up to $2,000 de­pen­dent on the ticket pur­chased. The game will air at 6:30 p.m. ev­ery Tues­day on Co­geco Chan­nel 11 or 700.

With over 50 ticket ven­dors in the city, and tick­ets priced at $5 or $10, com­mu­nity mem­bers have the op­por­tu­nity to give back to lo­cal ser­vices like Kins­men ini­tia­tives, Be­yond 21, Big Broth­ers Big Sis­ters of Corn­wall and District, the Corn­wall Com­mu­nity Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion and more.

“One hun­dred per cent of the money goes back into this com­mu­nity,” said Time Sage, Co-chair of Kins­men Bingo. “We serve our com­mu­nity’s’ great­est needs.”

Ac­cord­ing to Sage, who has been in­volved in Kins­men Bingo for over 9 year, the event re­quires over 200 hours of vol­un­teer work through­out the 10 months.

“It’s a big re­spon­si­bil­ity. It’s our largest fundraiser,” said Sage. “It’s a lot of work but it’s a ben­e­fit to the com­mu­nity.”

This year, Sage is hop­ing to have more mem­bers of the or­ga­ni­za­tions in­volved to bet­ter rep­re­sent who Kins­men is fundrais­ing for, and per­son­al­ize the experience for view­ers at home.

“We’re hop­ing to be more vis­ual this year,” he said
