Balance 180 Bingo
Balance 180 Bingo is a way for athletes to win prizes and help Balance 180 reach our fundraising goal! Each athlete is given a Bingo Card with squares that add up to a value of $180. The goal is to black out the bingo card with donations. Each bingo card has 16 squares with various dollar amounts for donors to choose from to donate. A donor can choose to donate to a single space, for example, $10 for the top left square, or they can claim multiple squares, like the entire top row! We encourage your athletes to reach out to friends, family, teachers, neighbors, etc. When you receive a donation for a square(s), cross off that box and make sure to write your donor's information on the back of the card.
Dollar Amount Prizes: As you collect donations your athlete can earn some awesome prizes- a sensory surprise, a Balance 180 jump rope, Power of the pit sunglasses, your very own betsy the builder stuffed animal and admission to Balance 180's VIP Kid's Night Out on January 20th or January 27th!
Bingo Card Black-Out: If an athlete can black-out their bingo card, receiving donations for every square on their board, they will get admission to Balance 180's VIP Kids Night Out! Enjoy a parents' night out while the kids have a fun night in the gym! Get ready for a night of games, challenges, gymnastics, and more with our Balance 180 coaches!
Top Earner: The top earner who raises the most amount of money will get to be a Balance 180 "Assistant Coach" for the day to hang out with their favorite friends at Balance 180 and see what it is like to be a coach!
