Bequia resident wins SOSVG Bingo jackpot

Last weekend, Special Olympics SVG moved its “Take us to the World” fund-raising drive to the beautiful island of Bequia, in the form of a Bingo.

The Clive Tannis Playing Field Hard court came alive, as the people of Bequia turned out in their numbers to play Bingo and support the travel of local athletes to the Special Olympics World Games in July.{{more}}

Seven rounds of Bingo were played, with prizes that ranged from $50 to $200. The big winner of the night was Jenet Goodluck, who scooped the jackpot of $500 and a $100 Courts gift voucher.

Other lucky winners were Denice Leonard, Sylvester Tannis, Leonard Burgin, Lynda John, Brennel Goodluck, Elvis Gordon, Nichole Hutchins, Keon Edwards and Leortha Thomas.
