Woman's Day Magazine is interested in featuring Huntley Bingo in a piece it's working on about community events with a purpose.

The story is scheduled to run in the magazine's January issue and will note how Huntley Bingo's main goal is raising money for families who have loved ones fighting pediatric cancer.

Every Monday, Huntley Bingo, a nonprofit organization, rents space from the American Legion Hall, 11712 Coral St., Huntley.

Photographs of people playing bingo this coming Monday will be taken for the upcoming article.

There will be a free $500 drawing, a $650 jackpot coverall game and three other jackpot games.

A free potluck dinner that includes several entrees and desserts will be served.

If you're interested in being part of the story, organizers ask that you wear your best smile.

The doors open at 6 p.m. and bingo begins an hour later.

Books of regular cards start at $5.
