Gimme Shelter Bingo Presented by the Russian River Sisters
The Russian River Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are proud to present a night of fun, fundraising and frivolity as only the Sisters know how to. This is not like any other Bingo game you've ever been to. Picture your Grandmother's church hall bingo crossed with the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and the Sisters in their best drag-nun attire.
You will be participating with all your fellow players to raise money for the Emergency Winter Shelter and the Senior Resource Center.
The purpose of the emergency winter shelter is to provide a basic, life-saving place for homeless adults in Western Sonoma County to sleep indoors during winter months. The shelter population is limited to individuals from West Sonoma County. Individuals seeking shelter from outside West Sonoma County will be allowed up to one night of shelter and will receive a bus pass to access other shelters in the County.
The WCCS Senior Services Center strives to enrich and strengthen the lives of seniors living in rural West Sonoma County. Their particular mission is to empower seniors to live independently by strengthening their family network. As Diane Spain, Senior Services Director says, "For seniors, family can be relatives, friends, pets and neighbors. We are often like a second family to those who come to the Senior Center, especially for those who have lost important people in their lives.
The Russian River Sisters are a 21st Century Order of Nuns. Our mission is to spread joy and goodwill through community events, charitable acts and fundraising, with focus on the special needs of the Russian River area. We are also busily at work in safer sex education efforts, political and socioeconomic awareness and community building efforts.
