DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Albany senior citizens had the chance to indulge, learn and play some bingo on Friday. 

The fall festival was put together by innovative senior solutions. 

The company has done similar events in Cordele and Americus and wanted to bring it here to Albany. 

Seniors and their caregivers enjoyed food from local restaurants. 

They also had the chance to talk with vendors about some of their health products and services. 

"It's a great event for them to come together and to be able to receive valuable resources in one location and to be able to fellowship with other seniors and other caregivers," innovative senior solutions community relations member, Donna Whitt, said.

The day wouldn't have been complete without a round of bingo, with a $250 prize. 

The company hopes to do the event again next year.
