Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee, announced today that the Foundation has awarded $5,225 to Friends of Callahan Center in Framingham for the purchase of a new state-of-the-art Bingo system.
According to Mark Goldman, president of the Friends, the Center’s current 15-year-old Bingo equipment has malfunctioned, making it difficult for the dozens of seniors who attend the weekly games to see and hear the numbers being called. Efforts to repair the system failed due to the unavailability of replacement parts, Goldman said, and the Friends plan to purchase a new system to better meet the needs of the Bingo population.
“For many of our residents, the weekly Bingo games at the Callahan Center are a major social event,” Haranas said. “We’re happy to help the Friends replace the outdated equipment with a new, modern system that will make the occasion even more enjoyable!”
