It’s a sell out

CHARLOTTE — Boys and girls, it’s official. Drag Bingo was a sell out. In fact, the event was out of tickets within 30 minutes after opening up sales.

However, the “Matt & Ramona Show” on 107.9 The Link — one of the presenting sponsors — decided to auction off their reserved table to the highest bidder. On Nov. 20, Zuni Johnson and Jason McCraw were notified that they were the lucky winners. They got to hang out with Matt and Ramona during the evening’s festivities.

The monies raised in the auction bid went to benefit the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network.

Don’t be tardy for the party!
