Church group warns about drag queen bingos

Mt. Pleasant Volunteer Fire Department won’t host another drag queen bingo, but it’s not because of the drag, Chief Jerry Lucia said.

“We didn’t have the large crowd we thought, and then we had bingo players come here thinking they’d be playing bingo all night,” Lucia said. “They only played like eight games.”

Still, the event raised almost $7,000, he said. For Sparkling Queens of Drag, a group that performs across the Mon Valley, a typical night will bring in between $5,000 and $30,000, founder Jeffrey Kaczynski said.

Several fire departments and local organizations have or will soon host drag queen bingos as fundraisers. In March, a group of pastors from Christians Uniting, a group of Christian churches and pastors in the Norvelt, Pleasant Unity area, sent letters to Mt. Pleasant area fire departments warning them about holding such events.

2. Wow that sounds like a hoot

We went to the brunch at Godfrey's here years ago. It was a great time.

A few years later I was training for a marathon and was running down Grace St. on a Sunday morning. There was no one else around when what do I see turn the corner but Cher. Godfrey's in the middle of the block so the performers have to walk about the back and around 1/2 a block to make their grand entrance at the front door and then walk through to the stage. It took me a few seconds but then it hit me - oh yeah Godfrey's
