You've Got Questions

When is the next event?
Bingo A-GoGo events are held twice each year. Our next event is Saturday, October 19, 2013.

Who can play bingo?
Anyone age 18 or older can play bingo.

Where can I get tickets?
Online ticketing is available now through Friday, May 16, 2014 at noon (CST). There will be no actual tickets for on-line purchases; just a receipt. If you aren’t at a printer, fear not. Your reservation will be at the will call area at the event.

Beginning March 1, 2014, you can also buy tickets directly at the following locations in Minneapolis (until the day before the event). Call first to make sure they are still available.

  • Fiant Dental, 2937 Lyndale Ave S, Suite 202, Minneapolis, (612) 827-7400
  • Park House, 710 East 24th St, Suite 303, Minneapolis, (612) 871-1264
  • Rainbow Road, 109 W. Grant Street, Minneapolis, (612) 872-8448
  • Wilde Roast Café, 65 Main St SE, Minneapolis, (612) 331-4544

How much does it cost?
$35 in advance (through noon on Friday, May 16, 2014). Admission is $45 at the door the night of the event.

What does the cost include?
Admission to the event and a 9-page packet with 9 games, 6 cards per page. Extra packets available for purchase at $35 each. Also includes loads of fun entertainment.

How can I be sure I can sit with my friends?
Pick a table host and purchase eight or more tickets online using that table host and you will automatically get a reserved table under the name of your table captain. When you click the on-line link above, just follow the instructions for ordering. FYI – Each person in your group can order tickets separately, using their own credit card. There is a spot to designate the table host of your group and you will all be seated at the same table. No tickets will be mailed; you just need to check in when you arrive. Questions? Call Shannon Regan at 612.871.1264.

What time does it start?
Doors open at 5:30 pm. Ticket holders must be seated by 6:45pm. Unoccupied seats may be resold. Games begin at 7:00 pm on the dot. Be sure to arrive early to meet your friends and enjoy the pre-Bingo food and beverages and check out the pre-bingo activities!

Where do I go?
Bingo A-GoGo is held at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. Paid parking is available at the Hyatt parking ramp, at other parking ramps downtown or on streets nearby.

What kinds of prizes are there?
Some games have cash prizes - multiple winners split the cash. Other games have fun and funky game prizes - multiple winners result in a playoff.  We strive to secure amazing raffle prizes – past prizes have included: a dinner a month for a year, theatre tickets at the Twin Cities finest venues, home design, a weekend getaway from a fine hotel, restaurant gift certificate packages, pamper yourself packages to local spas and more. Would you believe that we once offered a full series of Botox treatments?

What else is there besides Bingo?
With your hostess, the Twin Cities' own Miss Richfield 1981, you can count on lots of laughs throughout the evening. And don’t be surprised if some “unusual” entertainment shows up occasionally. You can buy raffle tickets for chances to win fabulous prizes. You might even be the lucky winner of the final Cover All game - $200 in cold hard cash!  You can eat yourself silly with great Bingo fare. Of course, you also receive great satisfaction from knowing that Bingo A Go Go benefits Park House, providing supportive housing and day health services to the HIV/AIDS community, and Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus, a GLBT community outreach and performance organization.

What if I'm hearing impaired?
ASL interpreted upon request. Email shannon.regan(at)allina.com two weeks prior to the event to request an interpreter. You will be notified if one is available.

What kind of food will be available?
Delectable surprises, depending on what we can get donated. Remember, we want Bingo A-GoGo to be a fabulous and fun event.  However, the bottom line is that we need to raise valuable funds to serve people living with HIV/AIDS and provide outreach and education for the GLBT community. Our food sleuths are busy finding donations of your favorite foods! There will always be Sweet Martha’s Cookies, hot dogs and popcorn!

What kind of beverages will be available?
Water, pop and selections from a full cocktail menu if you are so inclined.

What about smoking and guns?
This is a smoke-free and gun-free event. Smoking is allowed outside the building.
