Hamburger Mary’s Charity Bingo Night
August 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Come play and help Great Plains SPCA raise some moolah!
We fill up for almost every charity bingo event, so we encourage you to make reservations. That’s the only way to ensure you have a table. Bingo starts at 7:00 pm. Make your reservations by clicking here.
*Note: To be seated at a table during charity bingo events there is a $15 minimum purchase per person at the table mandatory purchase.
*To play bingo, a $10 donation to the charity will get you a book of 10 bingo cards. 100% of the donation goes to the charity. No cash prizes are given to game winners. Winners of each game are given a prize from the prize table which are donated to the charity.
What is a Community or Third-Party Event?
A community or third-party event is any fundraising activity that benefits GPSPCA and is organized by a non-affiliated group or individual. We generally do not do off-site adoption events, rather we focus on fundraising events. Examples of events are a day dedicated to GPSPCA where a percentage of sales is donated, a fashion show where tickets sales are donated, a dog walk where your family and friends raise money, or an employee event where your staff meets shelter pets.
The path to launching a community fundraising event begins with an idea and a plan of action that you present to GPSPCA. You and/or your group submit your application which becomes an agreement about expectations for GPSPCA’s involvement and the commitment you and/or your group is making for the event. If you would like to run your idea by us before submitting the application, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please return the completed third-party/community event application to:
Great Plains SPCA
5428 Antioch Drive
Merriam, KS 66202
What Happens Next?
First, we review your application and event proposal and evaluate it for fit with our organization’s mission and objectives as well as feasibility and timing. Once approved, we will reach out and provide guidance for your event and if it meets our publicity threshold, discuss ways we can help promote your event.
Please know that while we strive to support community fundraising events to the greatest extent possible with the resources we have, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to support every event.
Does GPSPCA Provide Staff or Volunteers to Execute Events?
The staffing needs and availability of staff and volunteers vary widely by event and while we provide the personnel support we can, we look to our event partners to handle the majority of the organizational, administrative and promotional tasks associated with third-party events. Similarly, while we love exposure for our animals, the venue or environment might not always be appropriate and we may not always have adoptable animals available to attend third-party/community events. Puppies and kittens are particularly susceptible to diseases in the environment so please understand if we cannot provide these young animals. We have lots of wonderful adult animals that love to get out of the shelter!
