Join Reading to Kids volunteers this Sunday at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood for Legendary Bingo!

Reading to Kids will be the charity beneficiary for the festivities on Sunday, February 21st. There is a $20 suggested donation at the door (cash only!) which includes 9 regular bingo games and one grand prize bingo game with fantastic prizes! The evening is hosted by "Famous Bingo Hostess Willam" & Bingo-boy!

All ages are welcome, but the show is R rated, so leave the kids at home!

There is limited seating and Legendary Bingo is very popular. Plan to arrive before 6:30 p.m. to get a seat. We strongly suggest making a reservation at Hamburger Mary's to guarantee a table, although please note that Hamburger Mary's only takes reservations for parties of 8 or more. Call Hamburger Mary's at (323) 654-3800.

SwoopOff, a local shopping service with unbeatable deals to the city's coolest places to eat, drink, and have fun, is partnering with local businesses to raise money for three non-profit organizations - and Reading to Kids is one of them!

To celebrate its launch on February 22, 2010, SwoopOff will donate more than half its first two weeks' revenue to local charities. Angelenos who sign up for SwoopOff's Free Deal Alerts during the promotion, vote for one of the three charities and SwoopOff will distribute proceeds with 30% of its revenue to the most popular, 15% to the second and 10% to the third.

Please support Reading to Kids while getting great deals by signing up with SwoopOff and voting for Reading to Kids. For more details, please visit the SwoopOff website.


Thanks, and we hope to see you for bingo on Sunday!
