January 1, 2012A NEW YEAR MORE ANTICIPATED THAN ANY OTHER — MAKE YOUR 2012 THE BEST FOR YOU!  For a long time, people have awaited the arrival of this year of incredible change and awakening.   Playing Bingo supports your local community by helping to raise real-time funds for real-time needs.      When you play Bingo, you can win big — no doubt.   However, what you may really find the most joy in is the friends you’ll make, who also like to win — but, also like to see people around them given a helping hand.     As a wise person once said, “Not a hand out, but a hand up”. When you play Bingo, you help those who are disadvantaged, or in need — but, you also support high achievers, like future Olympic athletes working out in your local club.    You support music, which can raise our spirits and get us vibrating better in the cosmos.    You support dance, which develops artful kinetics.   You support other artistic adventures, that make us think and look differently at the world around us.   When you play Bingo, you help people of all ages — including the elderly.   A lot of people think that the only people who play Bingo are the elderly!   Not true.   This is a misnomer you would discover the instant you walked into any of our participating advertising Halls.   However, groups raising funds at Bingo are working with the elderly — a significant group in our communities.    Other groups work with disabled children, helping them to learn and to walk and to mature. When you play Bingo, you support sports groups, who all give us reason to cheer through their achievements (and maybe our own). When you play Bingo, you’ll meet other like-minded people who will welcome you in, and make sure there’s a seat for you.    When people go to a casino, they usually go as a group of people they most likely already know.     When people purchase a lotto ticket, a big win may effect others, but it’s you against the ticket.     Bingo is a community of people, who love to get together at a place of more than just chance.    And the people who work at the Bingo Hall are happy to get to know you — not as a customer, but as a person (if you give them the chance). When you play Bingo at a Hall who advertises in Bingo Player Magazine, we also know you’ll find top service, a clean environment and friendly people.     We were reminded this past Christmas that these workers also give generously to help others — even though this is their job every day.     Selfless (and making mothers proud everywhere)! Clearly, we’re proud to speak loud and proud of the people we know through the Bingo Halls who advertise in our magazine.    Their Sponsors and Associations really care about raising funds — but they also care about giving you a fun experience, with ever amazing prizes and jackpot potentials. See Ontario Charitable Gaming Centre advertisements for more January 2012 events and promotions — including New Year’s Eve Party Details and much, much more!!
