With over 400 attendees, many fabulous designer bags and enough delicious food to go around, we can positively say that the second annual Designer Bags & Bingo benefiting Transitional Housing was a success.

Sam’s Pack Five Star Subaru of Grapevine once again hosted this wonderful event. From the moment guests entered the building, they were greeted by the handsome Bingo Gents, who would then escort them to the registration table. As you walk towards the back of the venue where the game was held, you were met with many activities to participate in, such as a selfie wall and a pie, prosecco and purse pull. All of that was just a start to all of the fun and friendly competition that was in store.

Event Co-Chair, Lynda Warner and CEO, Shonda Schaefer opened up the event by recognizing our presenting sponsor, Trusted Results Realty, and a heartwarming video of the GRACE Transitional Housing program. From there, the charming Bingo Gents began the parade of Bags. The gentlemen showed off the designer bags in some of the funniest ways. Whether it was a point and wink, or a goofy dance, these gentlemen knew how to work the crowd.

Next, it was time to play Bingo! As each round continued, attendees were served with some delicious gourmet food made by Ted Bilsky from Scratch Kitchen & Catering. Foods such as maple grilled cheese bites and strawberry shortcake made their way to everyone table.

After each round, the winner(s) received a golden ticket and the opportunity to take home the designer bag of their choice. The rounds became even more competitive when multiple attendees called out bingo simultaneously.

The 2022 Designer Bags & Bingo event was absolutely amazing. Everything from the décor to the event itself was truly fabulous. We thank everyone who attended, sponsored, and catered for this event. Another thanks goes to all of our wonderful volunteers who served in every capacity. From set up to take down and everything in between, we truly say thank you. Lastly, a very special thanks goes to our Designer Bags & Bingo committee, for spending countless hours of planning for this event. This event was successful because of your hard work and we appreciate you in so many ways. Thank you all who supported this event and we will see you next year for the 2023 Design Bags & Bingo event.
