Hambingo at Hamburger Mary's Benefiting FOJA

HamBINGO Mary’s is a weekly charity event held in Hamburger Mary’s Dining Room every Monday and Thursday evening (7pm)… with a different charity beneficiary every week. Hosted by some of Jacksonville’s most fabulous drag queens, you know this is NOT your typical “church basement bingo!” The show can get a little risqué, so enjoy the drink specials! It’s all about having fun while supporting local Jacksonville charities.

Guests are asked to make a $10 donation to play all night. If you want more chances to win, additional cards are available. The money collected for the Bingo cards goes directly to that night’s charity! We sometimes feature special shots and drink specials that benefit the charity as well, so “eat, drink, and be… MARY!”
