Bingo goes out with a BANG!

On Thursday, October 1, the closing party for Bingo for Beans and Babies was held at bite me! beach club on Los Muertos Beach. Nearly 200 people turned out to party the evening away in support of Pasitos de Luz. The party was entitled Mad Hatter, and the name turned out to be highly appropriate. Some truly astonishing head gear was in evidence and we truly appreciated the hard work and imagination people put in to their mostly home made creations.

Singer Kim Kuzma gave another truly terrific performance. Her amazing voice and charisma had the crowd on their feet dancing for most of the evening.

Bingo for Beans and Babies, sponsored by bite me! beach club, PVRPV – Puerto Vallarta Rentals and Xocodiva, has raised a total of $147,997.00 pesos for Pasitos de Luz, and last night’s party was a celebration of the generosity and commitment of so many loyal bingo fans. A big round of applause to everyone who attended, as well as to the many local businesses that pitched in to make this a success, donating both time and prizes.
