Every Final Friday we will be hosting Game Night Fundraisers.
The next one is February 27th, 7-10pm
We are hosting these events at Overland Baptist Church in the Educational building. The church is located just east of Woodson on Midland.
Entry fee is $5 per person, or $10 for groups up to 5 people.
Playing tabletop games earns you raffle tickets, and donations to the OBC Food Pantry earn additional tickets. (Any non-perishable food items or new personal care items are welcome.)
Our raffle prizes are donated by local game shops, collectors, and committee members. Prizes range from DVDs and book bundles to collectable toys and of course, games.
Thirsty? Hungry? We have a concession stand with snacks, candy, pizza, and soft drinks.
So come and play some old favorites or discover a favorite new game! People of all ages are welcome, so you can bring the kids, a date, your parents, or a group of friends!
We hope to see you there!
Come out and play!
