  • We raised $73,345 for RAIN in 2020!

  • This ain't your grandma's Zoom!

    Since 2000, Gay Bingo Charlotte has raised over $1.2 million for HIV care.

    Last year's event was a full hour of entertainment and filled with all the best parts of Gay Bingo Charlotte - BVD performances, laughs, raffle prizes and snarky commentary from our hostess, Barbara Burning Bush!

  • Gay Bingo Charlotte is one of the most unconventional fundraising events in Charlotte and Miss Rona won't stop us. Join us for a night of laughs, outrageous costumes, wacky games and unpredictable entertainment. All funds from this event stay in Charlotte and go to support HIV care. This ain't your grandma's bingo!


    Since the first bingo in 2000 attendance has grown from 100 people to sellout crowds of 1,500+ and has raised over $1.2 million to support the HIV services and programs RAIN provides to the Charlotte metro area.
