Local arts organization Zygote Press invites the community to join them for the Bada Bingo Spaghetti Dinner + Benefit. This year’s event will be held at Convivium 33 Gallery located at 1433 E 33rd Street, in Cleveland, on May 8, 2015. Entry includes a full sit-down dinner with food generously provided by local favorites including: Flying Fig, Grove Hill, Luna, Phoenix Coffee and more! Dj Ape Bleakney will be mixing beats while special guest MC Veranda Lni spices things up with a drag take on traditional Bingo.
With dinner starting at 7:30pm and Bingo at 8:30pm, attendees have plenty of time to take in the art exhibition, visit the cash bar, and get their cards set up for the game. Outrageous Bingo prizes include tickets to local favorites like Great Lakes Theater Company and Blossom, gift cards and goodies from Blush, Loganberry Books, Banyan Tree, and many, many more! The last card of night is our Bada Bingo extravaganza and the winner walks away with a $300 gift card to Lola and 2 tickets to the VIP Diamond Lounge at the Horseshoe Casino.
Guests will also have the opportunity to bid on amazing silent auction items such as a weekend in Vegas and a behind-the-scenes lunch+tour with architect John Williams of the new downtown Heinens.
“Zygote had so much fun putting on last year’s ‘Iron Printmaker’ benefit, we decided to take it up a notch with a twist on the idea of a spaghetti dinner in a church hall. Alenka Banko,” owner of Convivum 33 Gallery, “was so gracious in offering her space. The former St. Josaphat Catholic Church is the perfect place for this event and offers a beautiful backdrop for the art show and fundraiser,” said Executive Director Liz Maugans. “We are also incredibly grateful to our long list of sponsors which includes, William Busta, Process Creative, 4Walls, Jackson Lewis, Blick, Modern Contractors, Consolidated Printing, M Gentile Studios Inc, Phoenix, Luna, Lola, Reddi’s Pizza, Anna in the Raw, Tastebuds, Urban Orchid, First Federal of Lakewood, Hotcards, Fred + Laura Bidwell, Keith + Linda Berr, Outrageous endings by Sandi Lefkowitz, Samuel, Kellogg & Co., Inc., and Dr. Marie A. Simon + John Michael Zayac.”
Tickets start at $65 and includes dinner, 5 Bingo cards, and drink ticket. VIP tickets include dinner, 15 Bingo cards, 2 drink tickets, free valet, and a limited edition Bada Bingo Spaghetti dinner silk screened apron for $150. A VIP table for 6 can be purchased for $850. All proceeds go to Zygote Press, a 501(c)3 nonprofit serving artists and the community for nearly 20 years.
