Rosslyn BID Launches “BIDGO” Game to Help Residents Make The Most of Their Time at Home


Rosslyn BID Aims to Support Local Business and Keep the Community Involved with the Release of Their New Bingo Game

Rosslyn, VA – April 30, 2020 – The Rosslyn BID has unveiled a new offering for the Rosslyn community to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes. Rosslyn “BIDGO,” now available on the BID’s website, is a take on a classic BINGO game that incorporates at-home activities and Rosslyn-specific tasks. To play BIDGO, participants must complete five tasks on the card in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line, and send a photo of each activity with descriptions to events@rosslynva.org. The first 25 participants to submit a completed card verified by the BID will receive a $25 gift card from a participating #RosslynRewards restaurant of choice. Full details and rules can be found here, along with a copy of the BIDGO card for downloading.

“We know it’s difficult to feel connected to the community at a time when we can’t physically interact with one another,” said Rosslyn BID President Mary-Claire Burick. “By creating this BIDGO game, we wanted to give those who work and live in Rosslyn another way to support local businesses and have some fun at home.”

Activities on the BIDGO cards range from at-home activities like reading a new book or playing the BID’s virtual trivia game, a twice-weekly online event where participants have the chance to win gift cards of up to $75  to Target, Safeway and CVS. Other tasks include completing activities on Rosslyn BID’s wellness page, which was set up in partnership with local fitness studios, gyms and coaches to bring free content for residents and employees to view at home. Content relating to physical therapy and overall well-being are also available.

Participants can also cross off BIDGO spaces by supporting local restaurants through the BID’s #RosslynRewards program and restaurant directory. More details on both initiatives can be found here and here.
