Previews can be held during common hours (ie: lunch hour) where you have very small prizes and do about 5 games to be people interested.
Main event: plan 2 hours to host the event. Can do about 17 games regular bingo and some themed for your school. Can also presale dinner tickets and bake a meal that can be made in large quantities to sell there (ie: spaghetti, chili, hotdogs, etc)
Could expand the event to be more themed - costume contest (bingo themed), prizes for submission of best bingo puns to be used by host ( ie: “B9, as in that tumor is benign”), etc to draw bigger crowd.
