The Beach Bingo Bash is a great charity event happening on Friday, July 11, at 6:30 p.m. at the UARK Bowl in Fayetteville.
The cool thing is the event raises money for additional sensory therapy equipment for the Elizabeth Richardson Center’s special multi-sensory rooms at their 5 child development centers.
Tickets are only $50 or $85 per couple. There will be beach-themed food, tropical drinks, music and bingo – with lots of great raffle prizes for the winners!
The American Girl Doll “Julie” is one of the prizes you can win at the event, along with Royals tickets, Disney Park Hopper Passes and lots more.
Bo Mattingly is the emcee for the evening. He has a connection to ERC — his niece Berkeley is a pre-K student at the ERC Fayetteville Center.
Meet Berkeley and find out how you can help her and her friends at ERC. Berkeley is in awe of the multi-sensory room in this video (so adorable):
