Bingo for Boobies
It’s a fun and playful evening in support of a serious cause.

It’s $5 for two cards or $6 for three. Each round has a better prize than the one before, ranging from free appetizer cards to a $100 gift card to Revolution. Proceeds will raise money for the Dolla Dolla Bills team’s participation in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. 7:30-9:30 p.m. Mortimer’s Café and Pub, 210 E. Trade St., inside EpiCentre, mortimerspub.com, Facebook invite.
