Two organizations benefit
The first Litterbox Bingo has been scratched off the list, and it raised about $4,500 for two cat rescue organizations.
The bingo sold out at 149 preregistered players, plus a few walk-ins who came to Family Bowlaway at noon on Sunday.
Christina Coblentz of Homeless Cats of Butler was thrilled with the response to Litterbox Bingo, which will help fund the group's mission to trap, spay and neuter stray, feral and colony cats in the community.
The funds will also benefit Stray Solutions Animal Rescue, which helps find foster homes for rescued cats.
In addition to 13 games of bingo and chances at door prizes for a $15 donation, more than 85 raffle baskets were available at Litterbox Bingo.
Those who brought cat litter, cat food or other supplies were entered into a drawing for a gift card.
Many at the registration table also dropped cash into a donation box for the two organizations.
