Last Thursday evening at Festival Hall was one of great entertainment and fun, as Bingo for the Arts took to the stage in front of a large crowd.

With more than 250 tickets sold, Bingo for the Arts brought the community together to support the fundraising goals of Festival Hall to provide ongoing upkeep and modernization of the historic Greensboro landmark.

There were 15 rounds of Bingo played, with the numbers rolled out by Festival Hall Board Chairman Blayne May and announced by Vice Chair Justin Cullifer. Each round gave everyone a chance to win a prize donated by local businesses and supporters. Music was provided by DJ and board member Jarvis Wingfield.

Two food trucks from Burch and Southern Smoke Shack BBQ served great food and had long waiting lines, while inside Festival Hall a great selection of wines and beers were available to quench every thirst.
