Fourth Annual “Blingo” Fund-raiser to Benefit People with Disabilities


Those looking to enjoy a fun night out while supporting people with disabilities should plan to attend the fourth annual Sassy Baggs & Beyond “Blingo” fund-raiser Wednesday, February 26.

The event will be held at The Resource Center’s administrative offices at 200 Dunham Avenue in Celoron. Doors will open at 6:00, with the Blingo games starting at 7:00. Those planning to attend should park in the rear lot and use the entrance at the top of the ramp.

The evening will feature 12 games of bingo, with handbags as prizes. In between the Blingo games, there will be drawings for additional prizes donated by area merchants.

Admission is $20. Included in the cost of admission are the Blingo games and a chance to win a door prize.

The event is being organized by Filling the Gap, Inc., which works with The Resource Center to improve the lives of people with disabilities in Chautauqua County. Money raised through Sassy Baggs & Beyond Blingo will benefit The Resource Center’s Mark Pacheco WOW (Working on Wonders) Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The WOW Fund provides money so people with disabilities can enjoy experiences they otherwise could not afford.

Tickets are available at The Resource Center’s offices on Dunham Avenue and at Filling the Gap’s offices inside the Felice Corporate Center at 92 Fairmount Avenue in Jamestown. Tickets also will be available at the door the night of the event. For more information, phone 661-1477.
