The East Central/Sunman Dearborn Family, Career and Community Leaders of America will be holding the 14th annual Longaberger/Vera Bradley Bingo Fundraiser Wednesday, May 7, at 6 p.m. in the East Central High School cafeteria, according to adviser Brenda Osman.
The cost is $10. Many Vera Bradley purses and accessories, along with Longaberger baskets, pottery and much, much more will be given away that evening. Refreshments are included. Proceeds help raise money for community service projects, leadership conferences and chapter activities.
The chapter has over 300 members. Students in this organization plan and complete projects that emphasize planning, goal setting, career preparation and community service, which are skills needed in the home, workplace and community.
