The Groom Tigers and Tigerettes’ invite community members to join them for a fun bingo night on Nov. 20, at 6 p.m. “I hope it will go well,” junior Jamey Germany said. “It would be a big financial help to our basketball program.”

The Groom Tigers and Tigerettes’ invite community members to join them for a “Bingo Night” Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. The bingo event also will serve as an opportunity for the community to meet the ‘Ettes, as well as the Tigers, who will be playing basketball. That preview will occur at 5:45, after the Tigers and ‘Ettes start serving their community donation-only spaghetti dinner at 5.

“It (the dinner) is going to be a great way to raise money while offering an opportunity for the community to come together and have some fun,” head girls’ basketball coach Niki Black said.

Prizes will be awarded to those who win each round, and a grand prize will be given to the person who wins the blackout game.

“I hope it will go well,” junior Jamey Germany said. “It would be a big financial help to our basketball program.”

The prizes that will be awarded will include drink coupons, hair products, baked goods, and restaurant gift cards. Several area businesses contributed some of the prizes, and the athletes also will be providing some of the prizes themselves.

“I think it is a good idea to do meet the ‘Ettes,” junior Charity Perry said. “For so long the girls’ program has felt unrecognized by the community.”

However, the dinner is not just for the girls. They decided to invite the boys’ team to join them. The proceeds will go toward the athletic program as a whole and will benefit both the Tigers and the ‘Ettes.

“We hope to see everyone come out to support us,” head boys’ basketball coach Colton Woods said. “This fundraiser benefits the entire program, not just basketball.”
