Taylorsville Youth Council will be sponsoring a Bingo fundraiser for the Sanderson Community Center on Oct. 28 from 7 – 9 p.m. at the Taylorsville City Hall Council Chambers. Taylorsville City Hall is located at 2600 W. 5325 South.
There is a $10 entry fee for individuals, and a $30 entry feel for families up to five. The entry fee includes three game cards per person. The money raised will be going towards necessary funds for the Sanderson Community Center. The Sanderson Community Center offers sports, classes, support, and social gatherings for the deaf and hard of hearing.
“As a Youth Council we really love supporting our community and the things that make Taylorsville a great place to live,” says Youth Council Chair Jasey Wyatt. “What better way than to have our friends, families, and neighbors all come together for a fun-filled night.”
The Taylorsville Youth Council was created to help youth learn about and participate in local government. The Youth Council also helps organize and take part in local service projects and events.
“We have very service-minded youth in Taylorsville,” said Mayor Jerry Rechtenbach. “Besides giving them opportunities to serve, we are grateful for the opportunity to help a great organization like the Sanderson Community Center.”
Taylorsville Youth Council attended the annual Youth Council Conference at Utah State University where they won third place in the Award of Excellence.
