19Friday — Third Friday Bingo
This month Third Friday Bingo benefits the Queer Friends SLC, which strives to create a safe, welcoming, and supportive all-inclusive community through normal social activities and education.

Hot dogs, soft pretzels, nachos, soft drinks, and candy bars will be available for purchase.
First Baptist Church, 777 S. 1300 East, 7-9 p.m. Bingo cards: $6 for one or two for $10, party foul insurance is $5, Flamingo Hat of Shame is $5, Drag-in-a-Bag is $50 (for a contribution of $50 we will give the person of your choosing a drag makeover during intermission)
