Night of Hope and Caring 2018

Night of Hope and Caring

EVENT DATE: Tuesday, Feb. 20th
BINGO GAME COST: $10 per person regardless of age
WHAT YOU GET: 20 Games of Bingo playing fun

Joining the fun will be Storm players and cheerleaders, and there will also be a raffle, silent auction, and other ways to help the students of Sioux Falls!
