Las Vegas, NV – Saturday, February 25th, 2012
Celebrities and fans alike braved the unseasonably warm Las Vegas weather on Saturday for the “Bow Wow Bingo” event held at Silverton Hotel and Casino’s Veil Pavilion.
Fans began lining up well before start time to try to be one of the first 100 people inside and get their hands on a great goodie bag filled with over $300 worth of products.
The “Bow Wow Bingo” event was a benefit for the Nevada SPCA, who brought out several dogs and even some adorable baby lambs that they currently have up for adoption at their facility.
Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin from the popular Travel Channel show “Ghost Adventures” were on hand and were a big draw for this near capacity crowd.
Vegas shows were well represented with performers from “Absinthe”, “Vegas: The Show”, “Fantasy”, “Thunder from Down Under”, “The Australian Bee Gee’s Show” and more.
Other celebs in attendance included Terry Fator, Richard “Old Man” Harrison from “Pawn Stars”, “Josh Strickland”, and Robin Leach.
Inside the pavilion, guests were given a bingo ticket and dauber and a chance to win one of the great raffle items donated by local businesses and shows. The money raised will be used by the NSPCA to continue their work of animal rescue, rehabilitation and adoption. If you would like to donate to the NSPCA, you can do so via their website at https://nevadaspca.org/how-you-can-help/donate.
A big thank you to all of the celebrities who waived appearance fees and donated their time and to all of the attendees for coming out to make “Bow Wow Bingo” such a huge success!
