The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale
South Florida’s #1 Drag Queen Bingo will be calling numbers and letters for a cause on Thursday, May 20, from 6 – 8 p.m. at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale’s Palm Court Market. Hosted by entertainer Nicole Halliwell, this hilariously inappropriate game night is just $25 per person and benefits the FLITE Center, a nonprofit organization that guides those aging out of foster care and other vulnerable youth for successful transition to independence through housing, education, employment, and system of care coordination.
In addition to hosting Drag Queen Bingo, Nicole Halliwell will turn it up a notch with a stage performance. Prizes from mall retailers and restaurants will be awarded for winning cards throughout the evening.
Wine and spirits will be available onsite via Blue Martini. Other food and beverages will be available for the first hour from the Palm Court Market food vendors Charley’s Philly Steaks, Stefano Versace Gelato, Tobu and Tossed.
Drag Queen Bingo at The Galleria is supported by the Rising Leaders Council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.
