Bingo - in Águas da Prata - 5th Game

Bingo Beneficiente

The Bingo provides support to the poor and the elderly at various times during the year.

We came and spent another pleasant afternoon playing Bingo. I have changed the blog name to Bingo in Rural Brasil since once again we played on Saturday. We attended this Charity Bingo on Saturday, July 5, with another change of venue.

This time we met in the Seniors' Club in Águas da Prata. It is much larger than the other venues we have used.




As usual there was a great selection of prizes to be won.














Lucia, the caller, is ready to start the games. Those pies were prizes too.




There was a good crowd of about 100 players.




There was lots of room for everyone with room left over for more!














Lidia and Wanda smiling, having a great time.




The usual snacks were served. They were delicious!

We all had a very enjoyable afternoon and look forward to the next one in the Spring.

Domingo Bingo - Sunday Bingo - 4th Game

Bingo Beneficiente

The Bingo provides support to the poor, the elderly and at Christmas time they give gifts to the kids.

We came and spent an afternoon both pleasant and festive. Maybe I should not call it Domingo Bingo any more since we often play on Saturdays. *SMILE* Once again we attended the Charity Bingo, on Saturday, December 8, with a change of venue. The farm in São João da Boa Vista was prebooked so we met again in the building in Águas da Prata.

There were many prizes to be won and purchased, created by or supplied by the players.




The prizes mostly carried a Festive Christmas motif.




The prizes to be won or purchased were numerous as well as elegant. They are all donated for the event.




Here are more of this lovely collection.




This is a basket of special prizes won for door prizes or lucky draws.




Wow! A set of dishes for some lucky player.




Now the players with Laura wait in anticipation for the games to start.




Here are Judite and Odila.




Nair!




Maria Aparecida and Maria do Socorro!




Maria, the Caller, with a beautiful smile for the camera.




Judy, Bette and Roberto discuss strategy.




Neide, Virginia and Zila!




The used Bingo Cards are collected by Lourdes for a Lucky Draw.




Vera shows the prize in the next game.




Lourdes and Virgina served coffee during a break in the games.




Bette and Roberto study their card intensly.





Serious playing by serious players Lucia e Rosa!




Judite and other players waiting for the next number from the caller, Lucia.




These games get really intense.




Playing to win!




Two ladies
Marisa e Maria Aparecida, play while Joyce has a break.




Now it is snack time. Here Romilda is starting to serve the snacks.




MMMMMMM! These snacks are delightfuly enjoyed by everyone.




Laura has a birthday (just like last year). Here is her birthday cake.




Time for Joelma to light the candles.




There is also a second cake.




Happy Birthday to you, Laura!




This time we won a lovely center piece for the Christmas Table and a Music Box. We also won a mat and a beaded necklace (not shown here).


So a great time was had by all and these Bingos are a great social gathering and a wonderful opportunity to meet many new friends and practice my Portuguese.

This table was loaded with prizes.




This package contains a very special prize. The red and white mousy was made by our daughter Lucia.
