Beach Party Bingo was a huge success. We inserted 16,000 Bingo cards once and received 1,000 completed cards, over a 6% return. We conducted the prize drawing at the local mall, as we did for the first Bingo contest. However, this time we asked each of the sponsors to donate prizes that were given away before the $1,000 grand prize. The response to this request was tremendous: a microwave oven, $25, $50 and $100 gift cards.
Our Marketing Director had created a beach scene backdrop and kept the audience lively during the one hour program. We were expecting between 100-200 people and were overwhelmed when 500 people came. The mall’s corridors were packed!
