Christmas Bingo: Summer Editionwritten by Vicki Quade, one of the creators of the hit comedy Late Nite Catechismis streaming through Friday, July 31.
A portion of every ticket sold will go to help the Daughters of St. Paul, whose religious bookstore in downtown Chicago was heavily damaged by looters in the aftermath of the demonstrations against the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
Nuns4Fun Entertainment contacted the Pauline sisters to offer help with this fundraiser. Many of the holy cards and other items given as prizes in Christmas Bingo come from their bookstore.
A fixture in Chicago since 2012, Christmas Bingo is the second installment in Quade's bingo series, which also includes the long-running hit Bible Bingo. A note about the filming: This performance was recorded in 2018 at the Royal George Theater, and features the talents of Chicago-area actress Lisa Braatz, as Mrs. Mary Margaret O'Brien.
Tickets are $20 each; visit "Watch Christmas Bingo: Summer Edition Online! And Help Nuns!!" at Eventbrite.com .
