GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) – If you were driving in Girard on Monday, you might have noticed an unusual number of cars at Bruster’s Real Ice Cream.

Girard’s robotics team hosted a parking lot bingo fundraiser. Families and friends stayed in their cars to enjoy a fun and friendly game of bingo.

The team usually runs the bingo at the IFH Festival in Girard but it was canceled due to the pandemic.

“Our team is down about $20,000 in fundraising this year so our wonderful booster club came up with the idea of doing it outside in a parking lot, and Bruster’s Ice Cream here was gracious enough to allow us to use their parking lot,” said coach Judy Barber O’Brien.

“I’m very excited to be here. I’ve missed my bingo and I’m glad they’re having this. I’m just so excited and can’t wait to start,” said coach Dana Riley.

O’Brien said they counted over 70 cars that came out to play.

The crowd was able to enjoy 20 games of bingo.
