Arms Around Bainbridge will host a fundraiser evening featuring F-U-N, F-O-O-D and, of course, B-I-N-G-O.

The big benefit is Saturday, Jan. 18 at Grace Episcopal Church.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. with dinner being served at 6 p.m. Bingo runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Reservations are required to attend.

The mission of Arms Around Bainbridge, an all-volunteer organization founded in 2007, is to provide support to members of the Bainbridge Island community facing overwhelming financial and emotional burdens associated with a serious illness.

The event will feature a cash bar, pasta dinner and gourmet cupcakes, as well as music and entertainment provided by members of the Bainbridge Island Improv Group.

Tickets are on sale now. Event admission and dinner is $25; bingo costs $5 per game.

Individual all-inclusive event packages are available for $50, which include admission, dinner, bingo cards, a commemorative T-shirt and custom Arms Around Bainbridge grocery tote.

An all-inclusive package for up to 10 people is available for the group price of $500.

Because of its all-volunteer foundation, Arms Around Bainbridge states that they are able to ensure that 90 percent of donations directly support needy beneficiaries.
