Last night was Drag Queen Bingo night a few minutes from our house. It was a fundraiser for a garden area in Portola, and was kid friendly so after bath time, we headed over. Very first bingo round, Dav won (coupon to our fav brunch spot Tiffany's).
I told Aila that people will be dressed up, so Aila got out her special dress, her cheetah tail, a necklace, and her fancy purse. She wasn't disappointed to see folks in sparkles and big dresses. The Bingo numbers were a bit much for her, but she liked the party. I left early to get Aila to bed, but Tesla & Dav later came home with another bingo prize and a raffle prize that Aila wanted (golden dinosaur with a plant stuck to it). We scored!
I was happy that I got to meet a neighborhood leader whom I've only known via Nextdoor.com. I now know he's friends with 2 members of our Friends of Palou Phelps group. He was dressed up fabulously, leading the show. It's nights like this that make me really happy to live in our neighborhood, with people coming together for a cause. And with my organizing around the Palou Phelps hill, it's rewarding to hear people know about our cause : )
