The place was packed as over 60 local women raised over $1,000 at the “Girls Night Out Bingo” fundraiser Sunday night (Nov. 8th) at Sidestreet Kitchen & Bar in Burien.

It was an evening of enthusiastic fun, live music and bingo, with all proceeds going to Pasado’s Safe Haven.

Located about an hour north of Burien, Pasado’s Safe Haven is one of the premiere animal rescue organizations in the United States, dedicated to 24-hour rescue and rehabilitation of dogs, cats and farm animals. The sanctuary is home to hundreds of animals, most arriving as victims of abuse or neglect, now living out their lives in peace.

Tina Larson and Darla Green

Darla Green, owner of Skinperfect Aesthetics in Olde Burien, coordinated the event and donated hundreds of dollars of services and products.

Other local businesses donated well over a thousand dollars in prizes.

Two West Highland dogs made an appearance along with volunteers from Pasado’s.

One attendee called the event “overwhelmingly successful,” saying “the guests were energized,” and that the bingo game was “spirited.”

The room was moved by a marvelous act of charity – Tina Larson, owner of Grassroots Home and Garden in Olde Burien, won $200 cash in a drawing. Instantly, Tina donated her winnings to Pasado’s Safe Haven.

Over 60 women played bingo and raised at least $1,000 for Pasado's Safe Haven.

The menu, created especially for the fundraiser by Sidestreet owner and chef Dan Davis, included marinated caprese skewers, prime rib bites with creamy horseradish, candied walnuts, herb butter popcorn, savory sausage with mustard, olive tapenade and tomato spread.

    Wow, really great. But there are going to have to have a lot more of these to pay Susan Michaels salary these days. She gave herself a raise from $27,000 to $210,000 in 2008 (its on their 990 at Charity I believe she also had Pasado’s buy an 8 acre parcel of land and is putting a house on it (with Pasado’s money) for herself. Wow, along with the thousands of dollars of Pasado’s money reportedly used on medical treatment for her own personal pets, your going to have to have a lot more bingo nights to pay for her upkeep.

    Pretty lame that Pasado’s, who rescues animals from the sick and abusive meat and dairy industry is involved in a fund-raising event that serves up a bunch of steak and sausage, not to mention plenty of dairy products. They have always promoted veganism, which they absolutely should. What’s the deal here? This is like an environmental charity being sponsored by Hummer. Let’s just toss our principals in the trash!
