I did something new this month (well, last month since this is posting in August). I have really been brainstorming methods to grow my Scentsy Business and came upon an opportunity for a local event at our pizza place – Vincenzo’s. They’ve been really great about working with our community for different types of fundraising events. So last month I heard about a Bingo night where small businesses (primarily all in attendance were Direct Sales) could host a round of bingo and get to network and potentially obtain new customers.
I don’t know when I’ve ever played bingo. I have friends out of state that play but I’ve never done it here. So, I invited a few girlfriends for a Girls’ Night Out for pizza, beer, and bingo.
We ordered a small veggie pizza and their crust is hands down my favorite. They had a ton of options for beers on tap and I went with Illinois based 312.
We got our bingo cards and got ready to play. Each round was Caller’s Choice so most of the vendors had you spell out the first initial of their business. I was striking out for the first few rounds but it was ok cuz the girls and I used the chance to catch up a bit since we had all 8 of our kids away from us (yes, 8 kids with 3 moms. yikes. it’s loud)
After one of the rounds – I WON! I won a bag of coffee and since the price point is pretty steep, saving it for a special occasion 🙂 We have a few bags like this in our freezer (do you?)
I’m heading back there with friends on the 16th for Quarter Auction night. It’ll be my first event of our incentive period to work on earning a free cruise to Italy! Can’t wait 🙂
