Over the past 26 years, a parent-led bingo game has raised more than $12 million to support facilities construction and other major purchases for San Dimas High School.

Items of note include the original football stadium and field house, the covered lunch area, a school van, athletic equipment and uniforms, fans to help cool the gym and the blue wrought-iron fence that is nearly complete around the campus.

"The contribution to the school has been phenomenal," Principal Michael Kelly said. "Recent contributions have made such a difference - the lunch structure provides an outdoor eating area sheltered from sun and rain, and the fence contributes to a park-like atmosphere that is far superior to a chain-link fence."

If you would like to join in the fun, bingo occurs at 6:30 p.m. every Saturday night at Lone Hill Middle School. The group plays about 26 games per night. Early birds can play a few games for $6 each, and regular play is $20 per game.
