Hey Readers! This upcoming WED, my friend JC is having bingo at H Marys in WeHo. Come out and support him in his effort to raise $10,000 for Aids/Lifecycle! Below is his announcement:
This is not your grandmother’s BINGO!
As most of you are aware, I’m riding in AIDS/Lifecycle for my third consecutive year… biking 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles, June 3-9. And I’ve set an aggressive fundraising goal, with a promise to shave my head if I reach $10,000!!!
I’ve set up an event with the fine folks of Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s on Wednesday, May 9th at 7pm. Legendary Bingo is fun, energetic and has helped raise over 1.5 million dollars for various local charities over the last ten years. This is not your grandmother’s church bingo… though grandmother’s are welcome. 🙂
With the help of my peeps (thank you so much, guys), I’ve been busy amassing items for prizes to be given away or auctioned that evening: DVD box sets; gift certificates; event tickets; a bunch of signed television show memorabilia from COLD CASE, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, GREY’S ANATOMY, CRIMINAL MINDS, WITHOUT A TRACE, E.R., and ENTOURAGE; and other really cool prize packages to display on your mantel or hawk on eBay.
A $20.00 suggested donation at the door includes all ten bingo games played that evening, including the grand prize game. All profits from the event will benefit my ALC Ride and get me that much closer to sporting the Britney look.
If you have any questions about bingo or my Ride, don’t hesitate to call or email me. Please visit my homepage for more information on AIDS/Lifecycle or to make a donation: www.aidslifecycle.org/1161.
Here are some of the unique items you can win or buy at auction. A lot of these things are RARE and can make you lots of bank on eBay:
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES poker set
COLD CASE Patagonia backpack ($100 value) and cast-signed scripts.
GREY’S ANATOMY cast-signed scripts
E.R. cast-signed hospital scrubs
ENTOURAGE DVD, cast-signed script and cast-signed poster
DREAMGIRLS dolls (limited edition Effie and Deena dolls, plus outfits)
ANNIE LIEBOVITZ photography book, SIGNED by the artist
ROXY event tickets
Items from PHYLLIS DILLER’s personal collection, including: signed books, caricature, and orange & white-polka-dotted hat worn by Ms. Diller (all SIGNED)
This, by no means, is all that there is. I hope you can make it. Whether you can or not, please forward the bulletin or otherwise spread the word to all your friends, family, co-workers, etc.
NOTE: This is the earlier seating for bingo, so turnout is usually high, so I suggest arriving early.
