Maplewood Strollers to present two fundraiser events in September

The Maplewood Strollers have announced that this year’s fundraiser will consist of two Saturday evening events: a classic Bingo Night scheduled for Saturday, September 15, and a back-to-the-honky-tonk evening of Western line dancing set for the following Saturday, September 22.

The two fundraisers are actually more similar than one might think, explained Strollers president Judi Gajary. “Both bingo and line dancing have experienced a resurgence over the past few years. Their popularity with all ages and with families as well as singles is undeniable, and we think both are great fits for our membership and supporters.”

First up is Bingo Night on Saturday, September 15 from 7–9 p.m. Admission is $5. Additional cards may be purchased at the event for between $1 and $5, depending on the round. Part of the proceeds will be donated to The Montclair Studio Players to help with their flood recovery efforts. Fabulous prizes range from donations from members and local businesses to a share of the pot.

An Evening of Western Line Dancing will follow on Saturday, September 22 from 7–9 p.m. Admission is $10 per person. A professional instructor will be on hand to demonstrate moves.

Both events will be held in the community room of the Burgdorff Center, 10 Durand Road in Maplewood. Tickets will be available at the door. Refreshments will also be available for a donation.
