Arkansas celebrated with a bang at the July 13 Beach Bingo Bash with nearly 200 players to raise money for the Elizabeth Richardson Center.

Bingo has always been a great charitable resource in America and has raised millions of dollars throughout the decades.

The theme was Hawaiian with shirt and lei-clad guests arrived at the bingo beach party while tunes popular songs from decades past filled the air with magic. All guests chowed down on tropical-themed hors d’oeuvres and topical drinks, Tim and Jeff from Power 105.7-FM’s “Tim and Jeff in the Morning” show took the stage for the night’s main event — bingo.

Bingo prizes included getaways to Cherokee Casino and Eureka Springs, a children’s birthday party package and a car detailing package.

“We chose to do bingo because it’s not something that anyone else does,” said Kate Lunsford, marketing director of the Elizabeth Richardson Center. “There are a lot of galas and a lot of golf tournaments, so we wanted to do something that was different and fun and something that everyone could participate in.”

Money was raised for the center’s various programs that care for area individuals with disabilities since 1963. These centers service the attention and needs of children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years.

Other prizes included raffle items giving away a grill, a hammock, a quilt and other prizes.
