Second Chance Boxer Bingo at Hamburger Mary's
Monday September 22nd, 2014 6:30 PM until 09:30 PM
Location: Hamburger Mary's (813) 241-6279
Map: 1600 E. 7th Avenue, 2nd floor Tampa FL 33605

Join Second Chance Boxer Rescue (SCBR) on Monday evening, September 22 for some wild charity Bingo (HamBINGO) at Hamburger Mary's. All proceeds raised will go towards paying the numerous veterinary expenses incurred by the animals SCBR helps.

HamBINGO is a weekly charity event held in Hamburger Mary’s Dining Room every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday night. Hosted by some of Tampa’s most fabulous drag queens, this is not your typical “church basement bingo!” The show can get a little risqué, so enjoy the drink specials, and leave the kids at home. Guests make a $10 donation to pay 10 games of Bingo (additional sheets may be purchased). 

Not crazy enough? Just wait; there’s more! In addition to some fun Bingo, Bill Gray, SCBR’s well-regarded director, will be lookin’ like a lady—for the right price. If SCBR raises:

• $1000: Bill will be decked out in attractive women’s apparel and accessories that he has selected for himself. Won’t that be lovely?
• $2000: He will be at the mercy of SCBR volunteers to choose his fabulous outfit. Oh my goodness! I wonder what it will be!
• $3000: When SCBR achieves this donation level, Bill will be pulling out all the stops! He has graciously agreed to lip sync (and make a complete fool of himself) to a song on stage. You definitely don’t want to miss that show! It will certainly be a night to remember!
o Bonus! When SCBR reaches $3000, all donors (regardless of amount contributed) will be entered into a drawing to be personally graced with “Miss” Bill for a mini-date at the event that evening. Who wouldn’t want to have a cup of coffee with Bill in drag?

Second Chance Boxer Rescue and Second Chance Friends are all about the animals. With your financial support, we continue to seek out and provide help to the voiceless who desperately need it. Please join us and help make this event a great success!
