When: Family Bingo night is Thursday November 10th doors open at 6pm and Bingo starts at 6:30pm. Bingo cards are to be purchased at the event, so please bring cash, and don’t forget your dabbers!  

Where: St. Paul the Apostle Church (2400 Portage Ave)

How can you help?

Volunteers:  We are looking for a few individuals to assist throughout the evening; a great way to accumulate VIP hours!

Prize Donations: Bingo prizes are all assembled from individual items donated by our community, although we have received many wonderful donations thus far, we do need a few more.  Any toys, games and gift certificates would be much appreciated! Donated items will be counted towards volunteer hours.  Prizes can be dropped off at the school (front office).


Hello friends and parents of St. Charles School.   As we announced last week, the online gift card app, FlipGive, is up and running, and ready for us to use. 

Available for Apple iOS and Android, this app allows you to get gift cards, and part of the proceeds returns to the school.   Please join us in the fundraising effort, and thanks in advance. brings you right to our web site.   Black Friday is on its way soon, so we will have more to share with you!

Your fundraising team, Rick and Tiffany Lippens
