YOU'RE BOOKED...NOW WHAT?

So you've locked in a date, paid your deposit, now what? 

What you need to provide:

  • 10 bingo prizes

    • We can do 10 bingo games in a three-hour time period. Some groups are able to get more than 10 prizes, and that's ok. We'll adjust our games to fit in as many games as you have prizes. ​

  • A couple of volunteers to run the door. 

    • You'll need a couple folks to sell the bags of bingo chips to your guests and provide general direction​

  • Whatever else you want to do to make more money for your group that night. This might include raffle baskets, 50/50 drawings, food, etc.​​

What RnR Bingo will provide:

  • Up to 300 bingo cards and bags of chips. Some groups already know they will need more than that for their fundraising night, and that's ok. We charge an additional $10 / 50 cards and bags of chips we need to bring, but you need to let us know about a week in advance.

  • Sound and emcee services

    • We will keep everything moving throughout the entire night and will assist with calling out raffle ticket numbers, reminding people about silent auction closing times, where  or who they can buy tickets from, etc. Need an announcement made? Just let us know! We are here to help. ​

How to promote your event:

While RnR Bingo will create a Facebook event page (usually about a month before your event), we strongly encourage you to create your own Facebook event page. RnR Bingo has a following and you will get people come to your bingo just because they enjoy playing, but you also want to promote to your own followers who want to support you. Taking an hour of your time to create a Facebook event and list your event on the online community calendars listed below will help a great deal! The more people that know and will share your event, the more likely it is they will see it and come. 

 

**VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: **

 

Due to the number of RnR Bingo events we do each month, we pretty much put the same information on our Facebook event pages. (The information we put on our pages is listed below) IF YOUR EVENT has a start time other than 7pm on a Friday or Saturday, if people cannot bring in food, if you are selling cards for a different amount other than $10 and $5, or especially if you are taking reetc. PLEASE let us know! Preferably before we even post our event page

***Please remember, we LOVE it when our groups get creative with their event pages and flyers, however PLEASE help us out by mentioning in your promotions that the event is hosted by Rock n' Roll Bingo of the Quad Cities and be sure to USE OUR LOGO!! The reason we ask this is because we are working hard to grow our business and we want our fans to see this is a RnR Bingo of the QC event and come on out! You are welcome to use either of the logos listed below.

 

Odds and ends...

  • RnR Bingo will need your five music categories about a week before your event. They can be found here on our website by clicking on Services >> Bingo Hosts

  • We will arrive for set up about 85-90 minutes before the start of your bingo. We do not take long to set up and will have music up and running rather quickly to get the crowd excited as they enter and will continue with sound check, etc. We like to be ready to go at least 30-45 minutes before the start of bingo as Rockstar likes to start making announcements and talking to the players before we even begin. 

  • Raffle Basket Tips:

    • If you are doing raffle baskets (especially if you have quite a few) it makes the process go more smoothly if you have the ticket purchasers write their names on the back of their tickets. It is so much easier to hear your name being called than a series of 6 or 7 numbers on a ticket that each person has to then sort through all of their tickets to find. 

    • It is EXTREMELY helpful to our emcee if you pull the tickets just before he begins to call out the winners. There is no reason to have people see you pulling the tickets. Having them pulled and taped to each basket makes everything go quickly. 

    • The night's agenda typically goes:

      • 5 bingo games

      • 10-15 intermission

      • Calling of Raffle basket and 50/50 ticket winners

      • Few more bingo games

      • closing of silent auction

      • Remaining bingo games

        • If you have additional things to be done during the night, just let us know. Again, this is what we do and want your night to go well!

 

I hope this list provides you with everything you need to know about your bingo night with us! If you have additional questions that we didn't cover, please let us know!​​​​
