Drag Bingo Fundraiser, 7:00pm, Hamburger Mary's
WH2O Drag Queen Bingo Fundraiser
Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood
Wednesday, April 4, at 7 pm
As usual, we will need donations for bingo prizes as well as a few items for auction. The money we raise will help cover expenses for swim and water polo coaches to attend competitions with us. Here’s hoping that our fundraising efforts break records, as Nationals are going to be in Indianapolis this May and the Gay Games are taking place in Paris this August!
If you or someone you know have someone has a fabulous prize you’d like to donate, please email me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to let all donors know a couple of things:
West Hollywood Aquatics is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible
This is a great marketing opportunity and their names will be announced as prizes are won
The donations over the past few years have been incredibly generous and I hope that the prizes this year will be even more impressive.
We need nine regular prize packages and one grand prize. The regular prize packages should have a value of at least $50 and the grand prize should be at least $100. Be sure to tell people making donations that their businesses or services will be announced and promoted the night of our event.
We also need at least 2 or 3 super fancy items for live auction - these prizes will bring us the most money.
Some examples of fabulous auction items would be:
Two tickets to a TV show
Two tickets to the theatre
A gift certificate for dinner for two at a great restaurant
Two tickets to the LA Philharmonic, the Opera, or the Hollywood Bowl
Two tickets to a Lakers or Dodgers game
An evening at the Magic Castle
A weekend getaway at a swanky hotel in Palm Springs, San Francisco or Las Vegas
Two tickets to an exhibition opening at a museum
The suggested donation at the door is $20 for one set of bingo sheets. Attendance is key to getting lots of donations, so please invite your most high-rolling, big-spending friends and family. You can reserve seats for the event by calling Hamburger Mary’s at (323) 654-3800.
Volunteers will be needed for setting up, collecting cash at the door, and handing out bingo cards. Please contact me if you’re available to help. I will be following up with reminders and any updates as April 4th approaches. Let me know if you have any questions.
