Girls’ Night Out Bingo Bash Raises Big Bucks For Pasado’s Safe Haven
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 Pasadoâ€™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.
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 Pasadoâ€™s.
One attendee called the event â€œoverwhelmingly successful,â€ saying â€œthe guests were energized,â€ and that the bingo game was â€œspirited.â€
The room was moved by a marvelous act of charity â€“ Tina Larson, owner of Grassroots Home and Garden in Olde Burien, won $200 cash in a drawing. Instantly, Tina donated her winnings to Pasadoâ€™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.
