Hayden Mayor Scott Forssell and former Hayden City Councilman Dick Panabaker will call the numbers Saturday during Bingo Night at the Hayden Senior Center.
It will be the senior center's first big event since it relocated in May to the Coeur d'Alene Shrine Club Event Center at 1250 W. Lancaster Road, Hayden. The senior center — also known as the Hayden Senior Gems — had been in its previous site on North Government Way for 26 years, but was unable to stay at that location after the nonprofit's monthly rent was increased by more than 60%, from $3,475 to $5,800.
"We’re really trying to get the word out since we had to move," Hayden Senior Center treasurer Kathy Verburg said Tuesday. "The space with the Shriners has been really great."
Bingo Night goes from 4:30-9 p.m. The evening will feature prizes, food, drinks, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.
Tickets are $25 per person and include dinner, a drink and a bingo card. Cards will be sold at the door for $10. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
Attendees must be 18 or older. Adult beverages will be available for purchase for those 21 and older.
The Hayden Senior Center offers a number of health and wellness activities for seniors, including Fit n' Fall Proof classes, chair yoga, line dancing, tai chi and meditation.
The center serves lunch every Tuesday and Thursday. Social events include bingo, bridge, canasta, cribbage, Bible study, dominoes, mahjong, pinochle and more.
