AIDS Bingo fundraiser draws crowd

Published On: Jan 27 2013 05:30:07 PM CST

Madisonians played Bingo for some booty Sunday afternoon at the Sheraton Hotel.

The AIDS Network held a pirate-themed fundraiser that offered drinks, Bingo games and a 50-50 raffle for participants.

Coordinators said the fundraiser has grown over the years, and they expected a sold-out crowd at Sunday’s event.

“It’s incredible. It started out small, and it’s basically been word of mouth and social media,” AIDS Network Development Director Dan Curd said. “It’s grown. I know one person who has been here for every single bingo that we’ve had.”

Last year, the AIDS Network made nearly $30,000 at its Bingo events. They are hoping to even better this season.
