Alliance For Children to Host 8th Annual Let’s Play Bingo Ladies Luncheon Feb. 17

Fort Worth-based Alliance For Children is hosting its eighth annual Let’s Play Bingo Ladies Luncheon, a unique event to bring Tarrant County ladies together for a common cause: the prevention of child abuse. Emcees Deborah Ferguson, NBC 5’s morning anchor and Steve Lamb, WBAP radio host will lead over 550 women in six Bingo games.

“Seeing over 500 Tarrant County women join together all in the name of preventing child abuse is extraordinary. Through this memorable event, these women are able to be a force in the community, making a difference for local children and families,” said Julie Evans, Alliance For Children’s Executive Director in a press release.

The event will be held on Feb. 17 from 10:00am to 2:30pm at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel. A decadent lunch, champagne reception and prizes will all be included for event attendees as well as an opportunity to bid on exclusive silent and live auction items such as select trips, a Neiman Marcus spa package and Dallas Mavericks game passes.

Proceeds received through Let’s Play Bingo support Alliance For Children’s high quality, trauma focused programs for children offered at no cost to families. While Alliance For Children centers provide protection and hope to victims of child abuse, our education team trains the community in ways to better protect children from abuse. The event hopes to bring to light the significance of child abuse in Tarrant County.
