Bippity Boppity Bingo raised $107,000!
Thank you to all that attended Gay Bingo Charlotte 2021. You made this happen and we are beyond honored you joined us for our first in person event since 2019. We are also thankful that you welcomed our new hostess, Mimosa LaBouche, with open arms and cheers!
This ain't your grandma's bingo!
Since 2000, Gay Bingo Charlotte has raised over $1.5 million to support people living with HIV and those at risk.
COVID didn't stop us from having fun last year! It was a full hour of entertainment, filled with all the best parts of bingo - BVD routines, laughs, raffle prizes and snarky commentary from our hostess, Barbara Burning Bush!
Our community came together and helped raise over $70,000!
Gay Bingo Charlotte is one of the most unconventional fundraising events in Charlotte - this ain't your grandma's bingo! A wild, fun, outrageous and unpredictable evening of laughs, crazy costumes, dance routines, wacky entertainment, great music and a little bingo!
Since the first event - "Big Hair Bingo" - in February 2000, Bingo attendance has grown from 100 people at the Great Aunt Stella Center to sellout crowds of 1,400+ at the Charlotte Convention Center.
Gay Bingo Charlotte has raised over $1.3 million to support the HIV services and programs RAIN provides to the Charlotte metro area.
