Celebrate Outreach Saturday morning breakfasts

Friends,

Last month, Celebrate Outreach’s Saturday morning breakfast served a full breakfast to 758 homeless and marginally housed people.  Also last month, we received $0 from outside contributors.

Fortunately, unlike Blanche Dubois, Celebrate Outreach has always been able to count on the kindness of our friends.

Calvary Church in Clearwater and in Seminole each sponsor one weekend a month, supplying food, supplies and workers.  Drag Queen Bingo largely supports the rest of the breakfasts.

This Wednesday, January 16 friends of the Saturday breakfast will gather at Hamburger Mary’s, 2901 Tyrone Blvd. N. in St Pete for Anything Goes Bingo with drag queen caller Miranda Sugarbaker (motto: “This ain’t your gramma’s bingo”).  We guarantee food, friends, double entendres, single entendres, and a lot of fun.  The website information for the bingo is here,  

If you haven’t called to reserve, please call today.  And don’t forget to bring a bevy of your chums for the drag queen bingo competition.  There will be two fabulous trophies awarded: one for the group with the most members in attendance and one for the group with the most bingo winners.  Don’t have a group?  Get some people together, name yourselves, and come on down!  Or come on your own.  You can play solo or depend upon the kindness of strangers:  organize a group on the spot!

In the past, Drag Queen Bingo has raised enough money to finance the breakfast for sixth months, and we hope to do that again.  

Bingo sheets are available for a $10.00 cash donation. There will be gift bags for the winners, including wine from American Spirits and a gift certificate from Haslam’s Books. (Just keepin’ it local.)

The restaurant will seat people from 5:30-6:30.  Bingo starts at 7:00.

Call Hamburger Mary’s at (727) 851-9386 to reserve seats.  Please call ASAP. 

Call us at (727) 894-2832 if you have any questions.  See you Wednesday, January 16, and, as always, thanks to the kindness of our friends from everyone at the Saturday morning breakfast.

Drag Queen Bingo benefit for homeless breakfast Jan 16

drag queen bingo st pete drag race copyFriends,

 

Drag Queen Bingo, which puts the “fun” in “fundraising,” is essential to helping Celebrate Outreach feed over 150 homeless and precariously housed people at our Loaves and Fishes Breakfast every Saturday morning.

 

On Wednesday, January 16 friends and supporters of the breakfast will gather at Hamburger Mary’s, 2901 Tyrone Blvd. N. in St Pete for Anything Goes Bingo with drag queen caller Miranda Sugarbaker (motto: “This ain’t your gramma’s bingo”).  We guarantee food, friends, double entendres, single entendres, and a lot of fun. 

 

We also guarantee a drag queen bingo competition—but not one that involves fabulous clothes or, for that matter, race cars.  Grab members of a group in your life—a club, religious congregation, circle of friends, work colleagues—and join us at Hamburger Mary’s.  There will be two fabulous trophies awarded: one for the group with the most members in attendance and one for the group with the most bingo winners.  Don’t have a group?  Get some people together, name yourselves, and come on down!  Or come by yourself, with or without a nom de bingo (such as Party of One or Mondo Mono). 

 

No matter how big or small the number of people, please join us.  The Loaves and Fishes Breakfast feeds over 150 poor and homeless residents of St. Petersburg with a full Denny’s-style breakfast every Saturday morning.  In the past, Drag Queen Bingo has raised enough money to finance the breakfast for sixth months, and we hope to do that again. 

 

Bingo sheets are available for a $10.00 cash donation. There will be gift bags for the winners.  The website information for the bingo is here

 

Please spread the word.  I have attached the flyer for the event.  Feel free to post in virtual and/or physical reality, early and often.  The restaurant will seat people from 5:30-6:30. If you could come a bit early so the kitchen doesn’t get overwhelmed, that would be helpful.  Bingo starts at 7:00.

Call Hamburger Mary’s at (727) 851-9386 to reserve seats.  Please call ASAP.   

 

Call us at (727) 894-2832 if you have any questions.  See you Wednesday, January 16, and, as always, thanks from everyone at the Loaves and Fishes Breakfast.
