15th Annual Black-Tie GayBINGO!

Media Title

The glow on this crown jewel of the AIDS Fund’s fantabulous GayBINGO tiara has only deepened over 15 years. It takes something they do every month and kicks it up a notch and a half. Tickets for this one are admittedly a little bit of an investment (in your community) due to the black-tie dress code, and the soiree features dinner, six bingo games—highlighted, of course, by the dragtastic Bingo Verifying Divas—a silent auction and dancing. The night’s extra-special, too, because it honors some really important team players in the Philly community’s fight against HIV and AIDS: Ronda B. Goldfein, Esq., Al Vernacchio and Kevin and Keisha Diggs. Goldfein currently functions as the executive director of AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, while Vernacchio’s dedication to issues of sexuality goes way back to the Friends Central sex educator’s leadership within ActionAIDS in 1994. The Diggs kids, healthy children born to an HIV-positive mother, have been marching and volunteering to raise funds and awareness to combat the virus since the age of three. How amazing is that?

Aside from all of the great entertainment and wonderful people in attendance making giant strides towards stigma-erasing tonight, your hard-earned dollars go to an amazing organization. And it’s events like these—and next month’s Spring Break GayBINGO at the Gershman Y—that’ll bring us closer to living HIV and AIDS-free in the future. // BILL CHENEVERT
