2016 PlayBingo Ladies Luncheon 2017-02-06T11:01:59+00:00

PlayBingo Ladies Luncheon Raised More Than $500,000 to Support Child Abuse Victims!

The 13th annual PlayBingo Ladies Luncheon presented by Lexus of Austin & Lakeway, brought together a multitude of Austin women and Center for Child Protection supporters for a common cause – ending the cycle of child abuse – and a common love – BINGO. The ever-popular, sold-out event held in the Hilton Austin Grand Ballroom raise more than $500,000 for child victims in the Austin community. Returning as this year’s emcees were KXAN’s Jim Spencer and Lexus of Austin & Lakeways’ Cassie LaMere.

More than 1,000 guests arrived in PlayBingo fashion to play bingo, sip champagne and bid on more than 180 silent auction packages featuring eye-catching jewelry, designer handbags and a chance to enjoy dinner at Jack Gilmore’s new restaurant, Salt Traders Coastal Cooking. Each guest received a stylish bracelet of blush crystal and sterling silver that was hand strung by volunteers, while many of the guests also received fragrances, lotions and a variety of fabulous table prizes, courtesy of H-E-B, Trulucks and Vera Bradley. Additionally, eight lucky bingo winners took home grand prizes including David Yurman jewelry, a Tory Burch honey leather satchel from KB Home and a diamond bracelet from Diamonds Direct.

Thank  you to our sponsors, event attendees and volunteers for another fabulous year of bingo!
