SHERBURNE — On Dec. 6, Sherburne American Legion Post 876 will once again host a special session of their weekly BINGO and Friends of Rogers will be the designated beneficiary, with proceeds to support Rogers Center operations.

A seasonal bake sale benefit, similar to a “Holiday Cookie Walk,” will also be held throughout the evening. 

Doors open at 5:30 pm, with letters called beginning at 7 pm. Basic entry fee is $3 per person, with the option to purchase additional cards.

Traditional cash prizes are being offered for the BINGO games.

“All kitchen profits from this special night will be donated to support Friends of Rogers,” said Angela Jones, who coordinated the benefit.

“I’m proud to be a volunteer with this wonderful community organization,” Jones added.

Rogers Center is operated by Friends of Rogers Environmental Education Center, Inc., a nonprofit organization that offers educational programs for people of all ages.

Seasonal hours are from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.
