Strut for Kids Presents
The 3rd Annual Owen Preston BINGO Night
Supporting Greater Wilmington's Children with Cancer
The 3rd Annual Owen Preston Bingo Night is coming up on September 14, 2019!
This is one of Strut for Kids’ annual events to raise money for local families battling childhood cancer. Last year, we raised over $6,000 with the help of our business sponsors and attendees. And this year, we hope to raise even more to help local families who are going through one of the most difficult times of their lives.
But don’t let the word “fundraiser” scare you. This is a fun-filled evening packed with great prizes worth fighting over.
The inspiration for the inaugural Bingo Night came from Owen Preston, who fell in love with bingo during his 6-week stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Durham while receiving treatment for his cancer. Our goal is to honor the life of Owen, share his love for bingo, and raise funds to support other kids who are facing cancer like he did.
“Owen looked forward to Bingo night and we forged many friendships playing with other families. I am so glad we can keep Owen’s memory alive through another bingo night and this will be even more special as we will be raising money to support local families who have had a pediatric cancer diagnosis,” – Jennifer Preston, Owen’s mother.
