Rotary’s Motto is “Service Above Self,” and while the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary certainly takes that to heart with every service project they do, their unofficial motto may be, “We are Fun! We are Friendly! We Help Others!” With every event they do, whether they’re raising money to provide school supplies for local classrooms or for clean water, they try to make their events a place where guests and club members can have fun, camaraderie and a good time, all in the name of supporting charitable Rotary projects. One of the club’s most fun and widely attended events is its annual Luck O’ the Irish BingoFest! The community is invited to join the club for this night of festivities where they celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and get to hear happy attendees yell out “B-I-NG-O!” “Our annual BingoFest is a great way to meet your friends and neighbors and learn what Rotary is all about,” said Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Club President, Peter Smyth. “It’s also just a

fun place to try and win a game or two of Bingo, while listening to an Irish Band and sharing drinks with a room full of new friends!” The Luck O’ the Irish BingoFest will take place on Saturday, March 11 from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $45/person before March 1 and $55 after. Included in the admission price are 10 games of Bingo, with prizes paying out $100 for 9 games and the final blackout card pays $500. Cash door prizes ranging from $300-$100 will also be awarded. A dinner catered by Cantalini’s Salerno
