2 26 bingo supper

A Fat Tuesday bingo supper featuring authentic Cajun gumbo and king cake was the perfect combination for a successful second annual scholarship fundraiser hosted by the Onalaska First United Methodist Church. A $25 ticket entitled the holder to supper, two bingo cards and numerous chances to win prizes. About $5,000 was raised through the event and all proceeds will go toward scholarships for seniors graduating from Onalaska Junior/Senior High School. The fundraiser was the brainchild of Mary Helen Wolf, a member of Onalaska FUMC. Wolf’s mother, Nita Barker Regan, funded scholarships for graduating seniors in her community for many years and derived great joy from it. Wolf decided to do it in her community of Onalaska and name it after her mother. Roger Malaison, a church member originally from Louisiana, made the gumbo. The church fellowship hall was decorated in a Mardi Gras theme. With the funds raised, Wolf said they will be able to give either four or five $1,000 Nita Barker Regan Scholarships to Onalaska students this spring. Courtesy photo
