My early career was in teaching, writing, producing and directing for theatre, comedy and impro shows. Now I'm a professional creative person. Mostly high-end branding, strategy, writing, editing and digital content creation.
If you've never been to Bogan Bingo before, now's your chance to check it out and help a worthy cause. Birkdale State School's P and C have organised a night of Bogan Bingo fun to take place on the 26th of August at their school hall. Leanne Gill from the P and C told me, "Bogan Bingo is half game show, half party. The night is run by a professional entertainment company. One bingo caller calls out the numbers and their budding DJ plays songs from the 80s and 90s that rhyme with those numbers. There are jokes, air guitar competitions and prizes for best-dressed bogan of the night."
[p]"There is a wide range of prizes available on the night," she said, "Kindly donated by local businesses, these include: hair care products, hair appointments, local restaurant vouchers, Tupperware products, Norwex products, day spa vouchers and more."
The P and C will also run a raffle on the night. The first prize will be four VIP Movie World/Sea World vouchers. Second prize is two swimming lessons and third wins a hair care gift product basket to keep your massive mullet well groomed.
The event is for people aged 18 and over and there will be a bar operating with cheap drinks and nibblies from 6:30pm. Leanne said, "Funds raised from the night will be used to put towards the outdoor learning area currently being planned at the school. This area will be used by all students and encourages learning outside of the confines of the classroom."
Tickets for the Bogan Bingo night are $25 each or 2 for $40. Price includes your entry and bingo cards. You can buy yours from the P and C team before school each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings, or alternatively email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Birkdale State School is in Agnes Street and there is plenty of parking around, or catch a bus, cab or Uber if you're planning on getting your drink on.
