The Panola College Foundation is excited to announce Drive-In Designer Purse Bingo as its spring fundraiser. The event will be held at the Carthage Civic Center on Friday, April 16, 2021. This event has been adapted from the annual Designer Purse Bingo that is always a sell out with 550 attendees in the past.

“We will have two huge drive-in movie screens and the audio for the evening will be piped in through the vehicle’s FM radio,” said Jessica Pace, Director of Institutional Advancement at Panola College. “Attendees are welcome to bring chairs, tables, food and drinks to enjoy a tailgate-style evening. We are encouraging attendees to decorate their space and tables to really take advantage of the fun night out.”

Each group will have two parking spots – one for vehicle parking and one to set up any chairs or tables. There will be a parking space separating each group as well. Vehicle admission tickets are priced at $80, which includes two (2) admission tickets and the option to add up to eight (8) additional admission tickets per vehicle. General admission tickets include a dauber and 36 game cards (3 per game). Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and games will begin at 7:30 p.m. All proceeds from the event will go to support students, faculty, staff and special projects at Panola College.

“The Panola College Foundation has had a wonderful response at our past seven Designer Purse Bingo fundraisers,” said Vicky Hudson, Panola College Foundation Chair. “This event is a large part of the Panola College Foundation fundraising efforts to provide student scholarships and program grants each year. At the start of the pandemic, these funds allowed the Foundation to provide emergency grants to students to help them complete the spring semester despite the challenges.”
