Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) The Eureka Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence -a non-profit organization that operates for charitable purposes and enlightenment- along with The Eureka Woman’s Club held an event titled, Bingo for the Bathroom. A fundraiser but also a comedic bingo game.
If you weren’t there you definitely missed out as this was not your average bingo game.
Saturday evening, The Eureka Woman’s Club was packed selling nearly 170 tickets. The money raised will go towards remodeling the club’s bathrooms, making them ADA approved.
The sisters provided cash and raffle prizes, and there were tons of wild antics.
One sister told me this is not their first bingo game, as they have done several, however Sister Faund’amen said it’s about helping out those who need it most.
“We are an order of queer nuns all over the world. We are in 20 different countries and each city has its own chapter,” said Sister Faund’amen. “And what we do is, we raise money for local communities. We do activism for our local community, and we look for charities that are smaller that may have difficulties raising money for themselves; that share our values of inclusivity.”
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a worldwide community service group of non-religious “nuns” which have been servicing the people of Humboldt since March of 2006.
