Bonnie Friedericy and John Billingsley invite you to LEGENDARY BINGO. Bonnie, Cordelia's dress shop boss in BtVS S3 and Jasmine's assistant Patience in "Angel" S4, and John, werewolf expert Dr. Royce in "Unleashed" on "Angel" S5, are co-hosting the fundraising event on Wednesday 3 September at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood.
The event is to raise a few bucks for the Aids Service Center (a fab charitable org. that BF and JB have been supporting for many years).
"Legendary Bingo is cheap, fast and rowdy. A 'suggested donation' of 20 bucks buys you 10 bingo cards. The bingo caller is a bawdy drag queen, the prizes are pretty cool and you'll be out the door in under two hours. The Aids Service Center keeps 75% of the proceeds (we hope to raise two or three grand) and if you're so inclined the burgers are good and the drinks are strong. (They have a full menu and bar.)
Hamburger Mary's is at 8288 Santa Monica Blvd, at Sweetzer in West Hollywood. Valet parking is available in the restaurant lot, and the event starts at 9:00 (suggested arrival time is 8:45ish). If you'd like to come, check out the website below and enquire about making a reservation - Bonnie and John will try to set aside a big table to accommodate everybody.
The 'legendary bingo' website is www.legendarybingo.com. And by way of explication (i.e, what the hell is legendary bingo): a wonderful gentleman named Jeff Bowman organizes a bi-weekly bingo game, and the proceeds from each week's event are earmarked for different charitable groups. Bonnie and I have attended a number of games and they're always a lot of fun, even though we've never won anything, giving rise to the suspicion that the games are rigged . . . or we, perhaps, are simply 'bingo challenged'.
Thanks, hope to see you there: if you can't make it, but you're interested in making a small donation in support of the ASC, they can be contacted at www.aidsservicecenter.org . xox john and bonnie"
