American Legion Post 17 in Edgewater is hosting another Jackpot Bingo Tournament, open to the public, Saturday, March 10, at 1901 Harlan St. – a block south of 20th Avenue on Harlan.

All proceeds from the Jackpot Bingo Tournament goes towards the Post’s mission in helping American heroes, once they return home and abroad. Programs such as Freedom Service Dogs, Army and Air Force Veteran Relief, hand-made lap robes to Soldiers’ Homes, and items to our active military overseas – just to name a few.

Doors open at 11 a.m. and the tournament starts at noon.

A series of five games will be played. The first four games pay out $50 to the winner(s). The fifth game is a “black out” and the winner goes home with the jackpot.

Food and drinks will be available. Bingo cards are $1 or a sheet of six for $5. Must be 18 years of age to play.
