It's wedding season and we all know how expensive weddings can be. Here's great way to get some stuff practically free just by playing bingo.

The Friends of Vander Veer is sponsoring its Brides’ Bingo fundraiser beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 7, in the Gold Room of the Hotel Blackhawk, Davenport.Brides (and grooms)-to-be and their friends and family can play bingo to win prizes that can be used at a wedding.

Tickets are $15 in advance through Friday, April 5, at Burke Cleaners locations at 3522 Eastern Ave. and 936 W. 4th St., Davenport, and 3051 Devils Glen Road, Bettendorf. About 6-8 rounds of bingo will be played, and the winner of each round will win a prize; major donors are Twisted Mic’s and Shutterbooth Eastern Iowa.

The grand prize rounds are an additional $5. Theses prizes include wedding jewelry, hotel stays and spa packages. Door prizes also will be given away throughout the event.
