And B-I-N-G-O Was Her Name-o!
For those who think Bingo should be filed with Shuffleboard, think twice. Maybe think it once more, because three times...she's a lady. For seven sensational years now, WeHo's pride and joy, The Fabulous Belle-Aire and her Bingo-boy, have been raising money (and hemlines) for charity through Bingo. What began as a one-night stand (isn't that always the way?) as an APLA fundraiser has become, well, Legendary. Each week they have a special celebrity ball caller to add a little razzle dazzle. Hall of famers include Loni Anderson, Eliza Dushku, Linda Blair, Elvira, Jean Smart, Charlotte Rae and Tori Spelling, to drop a few names. A $20 suggested donation at the door will get you in for all the night's games. And if you can't make it tonight, book Belle-Aire and Bingo-boy for a private event; they say they'll work any room that fits their balls. (We can't make this stuff up!)
Tonight at 8:00 p.m.: “Bingo Is Soooo…Humane!” Starring The Fabulous Belle Aire & Bingo-boy, with special celebrity ballcaller and charity to be announced! Featuring Drink Specials, fabulous prize packages & auctions all night long!
