Oh, What A (Bingo) Night!

Thanks to our GSB Parents' Association, Founders Hall was filled with students, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends for the 1st Annual Family Bingo Night this past Saturday. Disco lights and confetti enveloped the room as participants enjoyed the spirited music, the challenge of friendly competition, and the thrill of winning fabulous prizes – all while feasting on pizza, salad, and "bingo-iced" cupcakes. The evening was MCed by "Mr. Bingo" himself, Tony DeVergillo, with special game callers David Pasquale, Kyle Armstrong, Coach Tony Bednarsky, and Lia Carruthers from the faculty. GSB parent Glenn Lawse called the first grand-prize game, and members of the boys' swim, basketball, and soccer teams, as well as members of the girls' varsity soccer team, enthusiastically stepped up to the microphone also to call a game and rally the crowd.

"We thought this would be an exciting and fun way to bring everyone together," noted PA President Monica Micera, P '22. "Our goal was simple: community building." And, according to the Bingo Committee Co-Chairs, Caroline Campion, P '22, and Emily Maillet, P '29, a fun time was, indeed, had by all!
