Bingo Bash 2022

Barbara Stone Foundation’s 5th annual Bingo Bash, held at the Carolina Bauernhaus, hosted over 250 guests and raised a record $15,000! Thank you to everyone who came out to play and supported our mission. We hope to see you next year. Mark your calendars for Bingo Bash 2023: Sunday, May 7, 2023.

Every donation, large and small affects positive change.

Within our generation, people with disabilities were locked away from society with a belief that they had nothing useful to contribute.  Although much progress has been made in the past fifty years, individuals with disabilities still struggle to be seen, heard, valued, and included.

YOU can be the difference.  Together, we can achieve our vision of a community where all individuals with disabilities flourish.
