OCTOBER 5
10:00AM – 1:30PM
JW MARRIOTT AUSTIN

The 16th annual PlayBingo Ladies Luncheon brought together approximately 1,200 influential Austin women and Center for Child Protection supporters for a common cause – ending the cycle of child abuse – and a common love – BINGO. Guests arrived dressed to impress in the JW Marriott Austin Grand Ballroom to play bingo, sip champagne, bid on more than 140 silent auction packages and enter our first PlayBingo Raffle for a chance to win a new Mercedes.

The ever-popular, sold-out event raised more than $885,000 for young victims of abuse in the Austin community. A special thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers and our returning emcees, KXAN’s Jim Spencer and Friends of Christopher Guild Member Cassie LaMere.

CENTER FOR CHILD PROTECTION
& FRIENDS OF CHRISTOPHER GUILD

PlayBingo is hosted by the Friends of Christopher Guild, an organization established out of the community’s despair, frustration and outrage over the death of two-year-old Christopher Wohlers. Formed in 1998 by concerned women and mothers, the Friends of Christopher Guild has been sustaining and expanding the safety net for abused children in Travis County for 21 years.
