These aren’t your usual bingo prizes! Designer Purse Bingo is back for a second year to support Happy Hollow Camp.

Jennifer Dant, development director for Happy Hollow Camp, joined us today to share more about this fundraiser which is happening on Thursday, September 23rd.

Westside Garden Plaza is presenting the 2nd Annual Designer Purse Bingo event to support Happy Hollow Children’s Camp.

An assortment of gourmet food from Westside’s chef will be available at the Westside Garden Plaza dining room.

While you enjoy great food, play bingo for a chance to win a new designer purse by winning one of 10 bingo games. The event ticket includes admittance to the event, food and beverage. A beer and wine cash bar is also available. Raffle handbags and a 50/50 raffle will also be on hand.

Event tickets are $40 per person. After September 9, the tickets are $50 each.  Event tickets are limited and are available on a first come first serve basis. Event tickets may be purchased at the Happy Hollow Children’s Camp website,

Each summer, Happy Hollow Children’s Camp serves 500 economically disadvantaged children from Central Indiana at Happy Hollow’s beautiful 900-acre camp located in Brown County, Indiana.

Over 95% of the children who attend our camp live in poverty. Most of these children never leave the city and they do not see life outside of their neighborhoods. Their families could never afford to send their child to camp. Funds from the wine tasting help these children leave their neighborhoods and enjoy the outdoors.

This event helps pay a large share of the costs of the summer camp program. At camp, the children gain self-confidence and knowledge that they can make positive decisions, overcome obstacles and accomplish their goals, long after they return to their communities. 

Founded in 1951, Happy Hollow Children’s Camp, Inc. provides residential camping activities, at their Brown County camp, with major emphasis on children who are economically disadvantaged. Over 40,000 children have attended the program. Their mission is creating outdoor learning experiences that inspire Indiana youth to reach their full potential as active, responsible and caring members of our community.
