Big’z Burger Joint, 2303 N. Loop 1604 W., is hosting a fundraiser tonight with several San Antonio social media clubs to raise money for the children of fishermen affected by the oil spill in the Gulf.
The event, part of a nationwide effort, runs from 5 to 8 p.m.
All money raised will go to Catholic Charities of New Orleans, which will, in turn, benefit the education of the children of fishermen hit hard by the oil spill, says Jennifer Milikien, who is working on the fundraiser. “Jennifer Navarrete (@epodcaster), Colleen Pence (@colleenpence) and Luis Sandoval, Jr. (@luissandovaljr) are all actively involved in this event, and Social Media Club, Social Media Breakfast of San Antonio and TweetBabes are all organizational sponsors of the event,” she says.
The theme of the evening is Bingo for the Beach, and Texas Tide will be playing beach music and old favorites during the evening. An oil-themed bingo game and other events are scheduled during the evening.
The cost is $10 a person, which includes a bingo card as well as admission.
