EV & PAULA BRUER

Paula and Ev quickly became a vital part of the Saint Bonaventure community in 1968 when their first of three sons enrolled at Saint Bonaventure. They joined the Booster Club and PTG Club and the next thing you know, Ev is behind the camera filming every football game for the coaches. This “2nd” career lasted 18 years!

After the wild 1968 football season ended Fr. Meskil approached Paula and Ev and asked them to start up a bingo program at the school. Gambling in California was illegal so they had a private meeting with the Chief of Police… and so the “The Social Club” began. They played twice a week and held special events throughout the year having over 400 people show up to play.

Paula and Ev have worked closely with Vi and Bob Parada over the years to make bingo a very successful venture for the school. The list of items bingo provided for Saint Bonaventure is too numerous to list but suffice it to say, we wouldn’t be nearly the campus that we are without the hard work and support of bingo and the Bruers.
