Vera Bradley Bingo a Fleetwood Tradition

Posted on October 24, 2011 by


The class of 2012 hosted their annual Vera Bradley Bingo on Sunday, 23 October, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The bingo began at 1:00 p.m., and cost was $20 for 22 games. Proceeds benefited the class of 2012. The event was held at the Maidencreek Banquet Hall in Blandon, PA.

Vera Bradley is a very popular brand of accessories for women. Their arsenal of accessories includes everything from handbags to tech cases. The paisley patterns on most of their items have been a hit in mainstream America.

“I personally have a tech case from Vera Bradley.  It is a perfect fit for my iPhone, and it looks great as well!” secretary of the board for Safe Graduation Maureen Cortazzo said.

The class of 2012 started their fundraising with an Applebee’s pancake breakfast, but the report came back that the breakfast did not have the desired outcome the board was seeking.

With the bingo here and gone, the class has been hoping more people will turn up to participate in this enjoyable, fun way to play a profitable game. Participants helped out the class of 2012, many of whom walked out with highly touted Vera Bradley bags.

Safe Graduation is something parents and class advisers have been undertaking for multiple years at Fleetwood Area High School. The seniors graduate and then, instead of going to  a dangerous party or getting  into trouble, the Safe Graduation board hosts an all-night event directly after the ceremony at Ozzy’s Fun Center

“The bingo game should bring out more people due to the interest among women for these great bags! This is not only for the females of Fleetwood; Men should come out, show support, and bring back their ladies a nice gift. For only $20 this is a fun fundraiser to support a good cause,” Cortazzo said.
