September 4, 2019   CLEARWATER, FL – Are you and your friends looking to have a great time for a great cause?

Come join the General Federation of Women’s Club (GFWC) Florida on Monday, September 16, at Hamburger Mary’s in Clearwater for a rollicking evening of legendary Charity Drag Queen Bingo. Proceeds will benefit Operation Smile, an international medical charity that has provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other dental and facial conditions.

According to Operation Smile, every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate and many are unable to access the safe, effective surgical care they need due to shortage of surgeons, medical infrastructure and affordability. A child’s cleft lip or cleft palate can be repaired for as little as $240 and in as few as 45 minutes. Your participation will help bring much-needed surgeries and renewed hope to children and families around the world.  

Join the hilarious hostess Antwanette for a night of silly, campy fun and help put a smile on a child’s face! Hamburger Mary’s famed Charity Drag Queen Bingo isn’t your grandma’s bingo! There will be a bounty of prizes throughout the nights including 50/50 drawings, gift cards, gift baskets and more! It’s wild, crazy, and a whole lot of fun. Great drinks, great food, GREAT cause!
