Earlier this year, the first Designer Bag Bingo Fundraiser was held to benefit Good Counsel South Jersey. A great time was had by all! The sold out crowd of 250 eagerly filled the social hall at St. Joseph’s in Beverly, New Jersey at 2 PM sharp.
The room was festively decorated and the tables were adorned with pictures of our Good Counsel babies. One guest recognized a baby who she plays with and rocks while volunteering her time at Good Counsel.
Complimentary coffee and desserts were offered and guests were encouraged to bring snacks. Before the bingo games began, the guests had a chance to peruse vendor tables and check out the many, many designer bags they would have a chance to win. Many guests who have attended similar events commented that this one was the most fun and the most organized that they have attended.
We are grateful for the hard work of Kelly Larkin and her planning committee for organizing this spectacular event! When asked what motivated her, Kelly said, “I was introduced to Good Counsel through a very good friend of mine. The mission of Good Counsel hit near and dear to my heart with what I went through growing up and I immediately had a warm feeling in my heart that I had to help.” Kelly then had an idea, “How about a Coach Bag Bingo? Let’s face it; every woman would love a chance to win a designer bag and have fun with their friends at the same time.”
Kelly was right! $8,000 was raised for the moms and babies of South Jersey. Larkin and her committed have already scheduled the next event for November 25th in the same location. Be sure to subscribe to our blog for updates!
