Laguna Beach Pride 365 hosts “Virtual Drag Bingo” on Thursday to aid Laguna Food Pantry

With the support of the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce and the City of Laguna Beach, Laguna Beach Pride 365 is hosting a “Virtual Drag Bingo” fundraiser to aid the Laguna Food Pantry on Thursday, Sept 3. 

With approximately 35 percent of the local community employed in the hospitality service industry, with restaurants, bars, and hotels being hit hard with extended closures and staff reductions, there is a great need to support them and our community. 

In response to the COVIC-19 pandemic, Laguna Beach Pride 365 developed a “Laguna Beach Cares” program. The hope is to raise enough financial support, with a goal of $10,000, to counter the negative impact that the pandemic has had on our community.

The “Virtual Drag Bingo” is free to play with opportunities to make donations and the chance to win all kinds of prizes from $25 gift cards to a hotel stay at the beautiful Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel in Huntington Beach. While it is not an in-person live event, it will stream live from downtown Laguna Beach on The Promenade to everyone participating online. Laguna Beach Pride will will showcase and introduce to the viewers the new Forest Street Promenade, while asking and reminding everyone to support the merchants of Laguna Beach and to please shop local.

Local personality Endora will be hosting the program with her usual wit and comedy, always in good taste and rated PG 13! Laguna Beach Pride needs the support of the community to help make this program a success.
