Bingo: Bingos are another opportunity for parents to raise money for their fundraising account. Payout varies from $10- $20/hour and the funds go directly to your account. Working bingos is actually quite a bit of fun and it's a great way to meet parents! Please contact Michelle @ if you have any questions or would like to work bingos. See more information on Rods Fundrasing opportunities.(info)
