CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Back to School Bingo will be held on Aug. 31, 7-10 p.m., at the LGBT Community Center of Charlotte, 2508 N. Davidson St.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and games commence at 7:30 p.m.

In other news, the center is seeking volunteers to help sustain the work that it does for the community.

Slots are available for those who want to help with fundraising, programming and special events. This is a good way to network with others, learn new skills, gain non-profit experience and support the center’s work.
