SOUTH HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Oxford House is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day Bingo Night fundraiser in South Hutchinson on March 17.  

“We do fundraisers all year, to help send Oxford House members to the [Oxford House] World Convention,” Stephen Bonnar, Oxford House Chapter 13 vice-chairman and State Housing Services West co-chairman, said. 

The Oxford House World Convention is an annual event where Oxford members from all over the U.S. gather to share their stories and promote recovery from addiction.  

Events will include a fish fry dinner, raffles, an auction, and of course, bingo.  

Bingo cards are one for $3 and two for $5. People who buy five bingo cards will receive a free blackout ticket. 

There will be raffle and bingo prizes.  

While the fish fry dinner is free, donations for the meal would be appreciated.  

Additionally, there will be a guest speaker.  

Ryan Eilers, Oxford House Chapter 13 Housing Services chairman, will be talking about his personal journey in recovery, including his Oxford House experience and how the nonprofit has helped him.  

Eilers will begin speaking at 8 p.m.  

Following Eilers, there will be an auction. Items include firepits, an outdoor furniture, and more.  

Oxford House’s St. Patrick’s Day Bingo Night fundraiser will take place at Our Lady Guadalupe Church located at 612 Maple St. in South Hutchinson. It will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
