Riley Creek Pharmacy Purse Bingo
“BINGO!” was shouted many times the night of April 24 as 200 players gathered to raise money in support of the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at the OSUCCC – James. Through the donations of local businesses, designer purses were purchased and used as prizes for the Riley Creek Pharmacy’s first annual Purse Bingo night! There were 20 rounds of Bingo played, and a purse prize was awarded at the end of each round. More than $7,000 was raised that evening. Riley Creek chose to support the Spielman Fund because several people from their community have been affected by breast cancer. One of their guests was nominated for a Stefanie’s Champions award one year ago, so it is a fund that is close to their hearts. Please visit the Riley Creek Pharmacy page on Facebook for additional information.
