New Orleans Abortion Fund (NOAF) hosts its annual sex ed bingo night fundraiser at Bayou Beer Garden Sept. 20.
NOAF is the local organization which raises money to assist low-income women who need an abortion; its bingo night features four rounds of bingo (obviously), fun sex trivia, comedy performances and networking for people interested in women's health care issues. If you're a bingo fanatic it's possible to buy extra cards with an additional donation. There are prizes for game winners.
This fundraiser also spotlights the Hyde Amendment, the 1976 law that prohibits federal funds from being used to pay for abortion care in most cases — a regulation women's health advocates say disproportionately penalizes poor women.
Tickets are $20 and are available online
. Extra bingo cards are $5. The event begins at 6 p.m.
