Palmetto Community Care's "marquee summertime fundraising event," Gay Bingo, returns this Aug. 15, 6-10 p.m. This year Gay Bingo moves to a bigger space — the Charleston Convention Center — so that even more attendees can join in the fun. Snag tickets for the night now for a discount: $30 through June 30, $40 through July, and $50 starting Aug. 1.

This year's theme, the Mad Hatter's Ball, encourages everyone to dress up — you know host Patti O'Furniture will be wearing her finest gear — and get down with some bingo, where winners will walk home with some killer prize packages (valued at hundreds of dollars, y'all). In addition to bingo, this year the event adds even more audience participation with the Divine Divas initiative.

Divine Divas invites attendees to apply to be transformed into drag stars for the evening. Participants are expected to raise at least $100 to help PCC's programs and services. Don't worry, you'll get help with selecting an outfit and makeup, and you'll have several chances to practice the choreography for a performance at Gay Bingo. Aspiring divas can apply online.
