Join American Legion Post 17 on Saturday, May 5, for its Jackpot Bingo Tournament, a perfect opportunity to have fun and support local heroes – veterans.

“All proceeds from the Jackpot Bingo Tournament go towards our mission to assist and help veterans and active military when they return home,” according to the Post’s Kim Davis.

“It’s a fun event and everyone loves a chance to win a jackpot! The more that play, the bigger the pot!”

Held at 1901 Harlan St., Edgewater, doors open at 11 a.m. and the tournament starts at noon.

A series of five games will be played, with the first four paying $50 to the winners. The fifth is a “black out” in which the winner goes home with the jackpot.

There will be a free raffle between games, and food and drinks will be available.

Bingo cards are $1 or a sheet of six for $5. Participants must be 18 years of age to play.
