Those looking to enjoy a fun night out while supporting people with disabilities should plan to attend the seventh annual Sassy Baggs & Beyond “Blingo” fund-raiser Thursday, March 30.
The event will be held at The Resource Center’s administrative offices at 200 Dunham Avenue in Celoron. Doors will open at 6:00, with the Blingo games starting at 7:00. Those planning to attend should park in the rear lot and use the entrance at the top of the ramp.
The evening will feature 12 games of bingo, with handbags as prizes. Admission is $20. Included in the cost of admission are the 12 Blingo games and a chance to win a door prize.
The event is being organized by Filling the Gap, Inc., which works with The Resource Center to improve the lives of people with disabilities in Chautauqua County. Money raised through Sassy Baggs & Beyond Blingo will benefit The Resource Center Mark Pacheco WOW (Working on Wonders) Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The WOW Fund provides money so people with disabilities can enjoy experiences they otherwise could not afford, such as attending concerts or sporting events.
“After a few years of hosting a virtual fund-raiser, we are thrilled to be back in person,” said Victoria Bardo, Development and Event manager for Filling the Gap. “Sassy Baggs and Beyond Blingo has always been a favorite fund- and friend-raiser for us. This is a great time for all who attend. We also provide light snacks and beverages.”
Tickets are available at The Resource Center’s offices on Dunham Avenue and at Filling the Gap’s offices inside the Felice Corporate Center at 92 Fairmount Avenue in Jamestown. Tickets also can be purchased online at www.fillingthegap.net/events/sassy-baggs-blingo/. For more information, phone 716-661-1477.
“Tickets are going fast. You won’t want to miss out on all of the festivities,” Bardo added.
