The single largest fundraiser for the VOCM Cares Foundation is the Lions Club/VOCM Cares Super Radio Bingo. Bingo runs for an hour every Saturday evening on all stations of the VOCM/CFCB Network and BIG Land Labrador’s FM.
The hour consists of four different bingo games.
Prizes are as follows:
- First Game = $500,
- Second Game = $1,000,
- Third Game = $1,500, and
- Fourth Game is an escalating Jackpot that grows until it is maxed.
Bingo games run for 14 weeks on Saturday evenings in the Fall (September to December) and another 14 weeks in the winter (January to April). Each evening begins at 6 pm in Newfoundland And 5:30 pm in Labrador.
Cards are distributed throughout the province by Lions Club members, as well as individual sellers where there are no active Lions Clubs. Cards are only $3 each and can be purchased at most retail outlets where you see the colourful bingo posters.
