Legendary Bingo

This is Los Angeles’s most popular and longest-running weekly charity event. In April 1998, Legendary Bingo served up its first set of balls at Stonewall Gourmet Coffee in West Hollywood as a fundraising event for AIDS Project Los Angeles. A few months later, the evening began to benefit a different charity each week, and the event became a “standing room only” sensation. Legendary Bingo has raised over 8 million dollars for local and national charities and the arts.
