The Westfield Area YMCA is hosting Pocketbook Bingo on Friday, April 26 from 7:00-9:30 pm at Holy Trinity Parish Center, 512 Westfield Avenue in Westfield. The community is welcome to enjoy a great evening out and chances to go home with designer pocketbooks all for a good cause! Only adults ages 18+ will be admitted. A contribution of $35 benefits the Y’s direct financial assistance program and includes 10 games of Bingo, a door prize ticket, dessert, and coffee. Participants can bring their own hors d’oeuvres and BYOB. Pocketbooks include Michael Kors, Coach and Kate Spade. There will be a raffle for an MZ Wallace Soho Tote and a 50/50 raffle. Extra games and daubers will be available.
The Westfield Area YMCA Annual Support Campaign ensures that no one experiencing a bona fide financial hardship that lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside is turned away for inability to pay. The majority of awards enable participation in the Y’s early learning, school age and summer day camp programs.
