Bingos and Casinos are major fundraisers with revenues covering operating expenses and helping to keep dancer fees low. All School of Dance families and all Cheremosh dancers are assigned one bingo per year. Other voluntary fundraising activities may occur throughout the year.
All School of Dance families are assigned one bingo; the schedule is published in late fall by the Bingo Coordinator.
One mandatory $500 “bingo security” cheque is collected from each family during the first week of practice. If a bingo is missed, the cheque is cashed.
Casinos bring in significant revenue to the Society and take place every 18-24 months. Society casino is not mandatory however all dancers/family members 18+ years of age are strongly encouraged to volunteer.
