Immediate Release 

Hollywood, CA – December 17, 2014  The Heart of Hollywood Foundation (H.H.F.) teamed up with Bingo Boy, Inc and Hamburger Mary’s West Hollywood this week for a thrilling evening of Legendary Bingo.  A crowd of nearly 150 showed up to support the cause.  $3,300 was raised.

Revenge’s Carolyn Hennesy (Twitter), along with America’s Next Top Model Cycle 21 Runner-Up, Will Jardell (Facebook, Twitter) made a special appearance to help call the balls during the 10 rounds of game play.  The organization raised nearly $3,300, with a portion of the monies going to Bingo Boy, Inc which runs the bingo event.  The remaining proceeds will be used to help operate the Heart of Hollywood Foundation, which provides services to the homeless living on the streets in Hollywood.  100% of the organization’s board, management and volunteer team serve without pay.

We consider this event an amazing success for our foundation, said Michael Kelley, Director of Global Outreach for H.H.F.   It was our first time partnering with Bingo Boy, Inc and Mary’s Weho, therefore we were a little uncertain how well this would work for us.   Our team was more than thrilled to see a packed house.  Having Carolyn & Will present to support us and entertain the crowd was true entertainment.  Everyone absolutely loved them.

The money raised will help cover a large portion of the foundation’s operating expenses for the first quarter of 2015.   To learn more about the Heart of Hollywood Foundation or to volunteer with one of their programs, visit their site at www.heartofhollywoodfoundation.org.
