On Thursday, Feb. 7, a fundraiser involving an evening of dinner, bingo and designer handbags will benefit Dr. Goodall’s House in Breckenridge and Virginia’s House in Graham. This year’s “Bingo for Bags” event will be at the Young County Arena with doors opening at 5 p.m.

The dinner, catered by Dos Chiles, will be served at 5:30 p.m.,  and bingo will begin at 6 p.m.

Attendees will play bingo to win designer handbags, and there will be a silent auction for vintage handbags as well. Local first responders from Stephens and Young counties will be the  models for the designer bags.

Sponsor tables are available for $1,000. Each table seats 10 guests who will receive a Sangria Spritzer; taco dinner; two drink tickets for choice of a glass of wine, beer or soda; chips, queso and salsa; and 25 bingo cards per guest. Sponsors also will receive a mention in all Bingo for Bags publications.

Some individual tickets will be for sale for $30 each; the deadline to purchase individual tickets is Jan. 31. Also, extra bingo cards and beverages will be available at the event for an additional charge.

This is the second Bingo for Bags fundraiser for Dr. Goodall’s/Virginia’s House. The first event was in 2017, and the organizers are planning on hosting the fundraiser every other year.
