Folks who were at the Madera Elks Lodge Tuesday for their regular bingo night got a surprise, and it was not an unexpected shout of “Bingo.”

Just before the final game of the evening a gentleman stood and asked to make an announcement. The bingo caller thought it was probably something to do with a lodge meeting or event and handed over the microphone.

In front of nearly 100 players, Benjamin Guzman approached the girl he loved, got down on one knee, and proposed to Robyn Gracey. With a big smile, and probably a tear or two, she said, “Yes.” The crowd applauded and cheered and wished them happiness.
