Rainbow Families bingo

This month saw the first Rainbow Families Bingo fundraiser - and what a successful and fun afternoon it was.

The fabulous Penny T generously gave up her time to host the event, and run the day - and she managed to keep the content of the afternoon appropriate for the school aged audience.ย 

The Ritz in Marrickville kindly allowed us to take over the bistro area, and it was the perfect space for the 100 or so people that came to play bingo, and be with community.ย

Events like this take a lot of work behind the scenes to organise. A special thanks to Penny T, Jolene, Vanessa and Mat who all gave up their time to put on this fantastic afternoon.

A silent auction and raffle helped raise over $5,000 for Rainbow Families to continue to support the community in 2019. Congratulations to all of the people that won auction items, and to the raffle and bingo winners!

Thank you to all of the businesses that donated prizes for the silent auction. We were overwhelmed by the number of people within the community that were keen to support Rainbow Families by donating prizes.ย 

We plan on adding Bingo to the Rainbow Families calendar each quarter, so keep an eye out for the next one, and if you would like to donate a prize for the next silent auction please let us know.
