The Maryknoll Karate Club will be holding its 35th annual Chicken Teriyaki and Bingo Fundraiser, which features Maryknoll’s famous barbecue chicken teriyaki plates using a recipe handed down by many generations and is regarded by chicken teriyaki fans as one of the best-tasting anywhere. The dish has grown so popular that after more than 30 years, the club is serving 1,500 plates to satisfied customers every year.

The cash bingo game annually attract many players from all over the community, novices and veterans alike, with generous cash pots and free raffle prizes in between games.
