Raise Up Fundraising was founded about a year ago, with a mission to “work in partnership with individuals and community organizations to provide supports, financial and otherwise, via creative and innovative fundraising events and projects, to marginalized persons and groups in Newfoundland.”
Their second annual DRAG BINGO fundraiser will support local LGBTQ+-serving organizations: the AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador, Spectrum Choir, and PFLAG Newfoundland and Labrador. Tickets are $30, you can buy them here.
The event will take place Friday July 7th at 9PM, at the Royal Canadian Legion on 5759 Blackmarsh Road, and will feature not just bingo, but games, drinks, and performances “by local Drag artists who will bring the heat to the early days of summer.”
Local drag performer Dr. Androbox will emcee the event, and the performers will be Fashionista Jones, Johnny Diamond, Evelyn J Tudor, The Island Belles, and Irma Gerd. Bingo winners will score a gift package filled with donations from local businesses and artists.
There will be a bar “with affordable drinks” and a DJ dance party following the bingo hosted by Slaylist and Dj Hearnia. Come in drag or just watch the show. Enter below for a pair of free tickets:
