Bryant Boys & Girls Clubs will host Fall Fest Bingo start­ing at 6 p.m. Sept. 27, at the Cen­ter at Bishop Park.

This is the third Bingo the or­ga­ni­za­tion has put on. Di­rec­tor of De­vel­op­ment Karissa Mc­don­ald praised the pre­vi­ous two events’ suc­cess, which in­cluded more than 500 play­ers tak­ing part in each.

“We were able to raise money that has been very im­por­tant within our pro­gram,” Mc­don­ald said.

The Boys & Girls Clubs is a place where lo­cal chil­dren go after school and dur­ing the sum­mer.

“We are here for kids to meet them when and where the need is most,” she said, adding chil­dren are most vul­ner­a­ble in the hours after school.

The Clubs pro­vide a safe place for chil­dren where they are in­structed and su­per­vised, she said. Mc­don­ald be­lieves the

in­ter­est meet­ing.

“I feel there is enough women in the com­mu­nity who could make a huge dif­fer­ence in Saline County,” Sea­graves said. “The com­mu­nity is go­ing to ben­e­fit from this club.”

She feels the Char­ter Night will be part fundraiser, part net­work­ing and part his­tory.

The Club meets at noon the sec­ond and fourth Mon­days at Wood­grill Buf­fet in Benton. It is $35 to join and un­til, Char­ter night, $84 yearly fee. The fee goes up slightly for those who join after.

Sea­graves wants to pro­vide a spe­cial thanks to

Club Pres­i­dent Kim­berly Sch­lei­der for all her hard work.
