It has become a community tradition since our first La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association New Year’s Day float that a Bingo Barbecue would be one of two major fund-raisers to insure that our float will make its way down Pasadena’s Colorado Boulevard each Jan. 1.
This year marks the 29th Bingo Barbecue event and it drew more than 150 supporters. It is always such a joyful crowd, with many members wearing Western-inspired duds. The event was held at the La Cañada Thursday Club.
The co-chairs for the event were Sue Beatty and Joan McGee. What a fabulous job they did, with a team of incredible volunteers to help the evening run smoothly.
Folks sidled up to the bar set up on the outdoor patio for something to wet their whistles before they got down to the serious business of watching their bingo cards. Each guest received one complimentary bingo card. More could be purchased for $1 each. Some people had an impressive array of multiple bingo cards to keep track of.
