Charleston Gay Bingo

Thank you to all who attended Charleston Gay Bingo in 2022

Gay Bingo is a marquee fundraising event for Palmetto Community Care. This evening of fun and frivolity pairs with an important message – the HIV/AIDS epidemic is still affecting many in our community, LGBTQ and straight alike. Tonight was not just a fundraising event, but an exercise in awareness, tolerance and advocacy for our entire Lowcountry community.

Remember, at Gay Bingo a winner is never a straight line and everyone has a ball! Interested in becoming a future sponsor for Gay Bingo? Give us a call at (843) 747-2273.

Lipstick and Leather raised over $65,000 and you helped make this happen! We are beyond honored those that joined us for our first in person event since 2019!

What Details Were New This Year?

Aside from our fabulous theme, Lipstick and Leather, we’ve reserved twice as much space for twice the party as our event has sold out every year! We are excited to bring Gay Bingo back to the the Charleston Convention Center and move into a space big enough to accommodate all our amazing guests and still have room for Patti O’Furniture’s hair!

What to Expect at Gay Bingo

We suggest arriving early to allow time for check-in and to grab your seats or find your table. Cash bars will be avalable after checking in. It’s a great time to get a drink and get settled in for a fabulous night. We will get started promptly at 6:30 p.m. and at about 8 p.m. we will have an intermission to allow you to take a break, grab food or drink and catch up with other guests. Then it is back to Bingo, awards for best-dressed and more entertainment!

We expect the event to end by 10:00 p.m.

All About Patti

Patti O’Furniture returns for the sixth year in a row as our amazing hostess! Words can’t describe our appreciation for the time, talent and dedication that Patti has shown throughout the years. She has helped raise thousands upon thousands of dollars to help those living with HIV/AIDS throughout the Southeast and she continues to help educate the masses on how to prevent HIV all while bringing joy and laughter to so many. We are excited to see what Patti O’Furniture brings to the stage for 2022!

Our Amazing BVDs

What is a BVD? Well, a Bingo Verifying Diva, of course! They dance, they twirl and they verify all our bingos (and they look damn good doing it, too!). Check back soon to find out which BVDs will be partying with us this year!
