For a sneak peek at the evening’s promise – take a look at last year’s Bingo event:
High above the Sunset Strip, with breath-taking views of Hollywood below, an eclectic group gathered at the Andaz West Hollywood for a raucous evening to benefit the LMGA & Habitat for Humanity.
Bingo Boy, the master of ceremonies, along with the fabulous drag queen Roxy Wood entertained the packed house; while the good people of the Andaz, Location professionals, LMGA business members, industry vendors, FLICS liaisons and friends, joined together to make this event a huge success.
