Bingo Volunteers


Bereaved Families of Ontario – Midwestern Region is extremely fortunate to be a recipient of funds raised through bingo sessions held at the KW Gaming Centre in Kitchener.

Money raised through bingo is essential to BFO-MR so that we can provide our peer grief support programs to children, families and individuals in the community free of charge.

We have an IMMEDIATE NEED for volunteers who can help run our bingo sessions twice per month. Each session requires three volunteers and we’re looking for two or three teams for this position. This is a great opportunity for friends to volunteer together!

Front desk sales (1 volunteer)

  • Counting card inventory
  • Greeting customers and selling bingo cards
  • Managing cash float
  • Tracking sales and calculating payouts through duration of bingo session
  • Reconciling inventory and sales at the end of the shift

Runners (2-3 volunteers)

  • Assist front desk with counting card inventory at the beginning of shift
  • Selling specials before bingo begins
  • Selling specials on the floor throughout the session
  • Confirm bingo winners and ensure proper payout

BFO-MR currently holds Breakfast Bingo spots (8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m) twice per month on a Wednesday and Friday mornings.
