In this time when everything from shopping to auctions have gone online, the Kappa Alpha Theta Dallas Alumnae Chapter tried something different last year for a fundraiser — a bingo party. The “numbers game” wasn’t necessarily new. In fact it was ages old. But over the years its popularity had waned a bit with the advent of electronic games and other high-tech outlets.
Still the Thetas took a chance on this game of chance. Instead of a bingo hall, they held Thetas And Friends Night at Brook Hollow that has been the site of debutante parties, fantasy seated suppers and ever so intellectual lectures. While some highbrows were skeptical of the event succeeding, it was an amazing homerun with even the Club’s staff giving rave reviews in the following days and weeks.
This year’s Thetas And Friends Night is returning to Brook Hollow on Tuesday, November 13. In charge of the cards, the appetizers, the open bar and the prizes is Event Chair Kristi Hoyl.
Tickets range from 1 Wonder Woman ticket that includes one bingo card going for $200 to 1 Pansy Power (VIP Party, Preferred seating plus two bingo cards) for $500. The funds will benefit Dallas CASA and the Kapa Alpha Theta Foundation.
To win doesn’t require a Ph.D. or any musical talents. You just have to hear the right numbers called and cover the winning squares.
BTW, this night of games and getting together is open to Kappas, Tri Delts, Chi Os, GDIs and all friends.
Now the big question is, “What does one wear to a bingo party?” The answer: a lucky charm.
