PHILIPSBURG – The St. Maarten Lions Club Bingo, which was held at the Port St. Maarten Home Porting Terminal last Saturday, June 17, was a grand success with over 700 persons playing 35 games that started at 8:00pm sharp.

The prizes that bingo winners won ranged from home appliances, restaurant vouchers, various electronics items, hotel stays and airline tickets. The grand prize winner Frederick Williams, who had a full bingo card, won a round trip ticket to Amsterdam on Air France.

The Lions Club thanked the Management and employees of Port St. Maarten for accommodating the Lions Bingo at their facility, and also the St. Maarten business community for supporting the bingo with their generous donation of prizes.

Proceeds for the bingo will go towards community projects that the St. Maarten Lions Club will do over 2017-2018 under its incoming President Alison Busby.
