Play Bingo with Sylvia O’Stayformore, DonnaTella Howe, and Friends

Sylvia Hosts ‘Game Show Bingo’

Seriously, bingo. At the Senior Center of West Seattle. Look at that photo, it’s not senior bingo like you might think! This is a Diva MUST. You’ll find us there with our Saturgays and friends almost monthly playing and fundraising. Hosted by Diva Dweller and supreme hostess Sylvia O’Stayformore. Each month is a different theme (yes that means you can come in costume), enjoy a menu that’s also themed, cocktails, Jell-O shots and wild bingo shenanigans. Benefitting the senior center, which has a large LGBTQ senior population. You will feel how community-oriented everyone is at this event. DonnaTella and a second drag or burlesque performer work the confirming bingos and selling raffle tickets for the big 50/50 cash prize raffle. Its a hoot and a half and sells out at least a month in advance. We told you it’s popular!
