‘Bags, Bingo & Badges’ set April 3

Special to the Index

Do purse names like Vera Bradley, Brighton, Coach, Prada, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, Kenneth Cole, Dooney Bourke or Michael Kors hold a special place in your heart?

Or do you like the sound of owning a one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted leather purse made by Strawn resident Diana Blessing? Perhaps the thought of local law enforcement officers modeling designer handbags interests you?

With the kind and valuable assistance of the Knights of Pythias of Mineral Wells conducting the Bingo games, the Children’s Alliance Center for Palo Pinto County is hosting its “Bags, Bingo and Badges” fundraiser on April 3, and you can be a winner!

The event takes place from 6-9 p.m. at Clark Gardens Botanical Park, with admittance beginning at 5:30 p.m.

One ticket to “Bags, Bingo and Badges” includes 20 Bingo game cards for the ticket holder to play for the chance to win designer handbags, retailing from a couple hundred dollars upwards. Additional game cards will be for sale at the event for those who want to increase their odds of winning a specific bag.

There will be light hors d’oeuvres served and a cash bar.

Tickets are $30 per person, for advance tickets, or $35/person at the door and are sold through CACPPC board members. Tickets are also available for purchase from Titan Bank, Ace Hardware, Cole’s Flowers or by calling 940-445-7380. Tables that have been sponsored will be guaranteed reserved seating. All other (general admission) seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. All proceeds of the event will benefit the CACPPC.

In addition to purses, there will be door prizes and raffle opportunities for ticket holders.

The CACPPC hopes “Bags, Bingo and Badges” is such a success that it becomes the flagship annual event – much like the Hope Gala or the Salsa Barron’s Ball, for their respective charities. Proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships will help the CACPPC fulfill its mission: “Uniting collective efforts to prevent child abuse, reduce trauma of abuse, and protect children, while restoring the families of our community.”
