BECKLEY - A bingo-style fundraiser was held Saturday night to raise money for World Youth Day pilgrims.
About 100 people attended the event at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Beckley. Those in attendance were playing for Coach merchandise prizes. Proceeds from ticket sales are going towards the cost of sending a student to World Youth Day in 2016.
Debra Macaulay said, "it's all for a good cause, $25 to get them in the door, $4,000 worth of purses, food, concessions, drinks, comradery with neighbors, friends, and coworkers. A lot of good things to give away."
Macaulay also said that they plan to hold more fundraisers in the future.
